The number of points each question of a Problem Set is worth is based on the estimated time to complete it. Syntax errors in mathematical expressions are not counted as an attempt, provided the software recognises it as such.

My impression is that most of the problems in Mastering Physics are actually just minor variations on the problems in the printed text, but I don't actually know for sure.
I wonder whether this statement by Palazzo is out of date, or was perhaps unrealistic even in 2010 and influenced by assurances from Pearson's sales reps. 6, 010104 (open access) someone who had experience with Chegg.
From what I can tell, Chegg's business model is designed to make it practically impossible for a textbook publisher to do what Palazzo claims Pearson does. Before I had even finished explaining the question, some of them were already laughing.
It seems like it would be an endless game of whack-a-mole. They say that 100% of Mastering Physics questions are on Chegg, including both the conceptual questions and the quantitative ones.software for 2 types of assignments in PHY138: Pre-Class Quizzes and Problem Sets.
