About Exam Copies
With the approval of your local sales representative and confirmation of your instructor status, examination copies are available for you to review and consider for use in your courses. Examination copies are offered free of charge for your consideration, and should not be sold in bookstores or to book resellers.
About Desk Copies
We are happy to provide desk copies and additional teaching materials to qualified adopters of our text books. Because these books and materials are frequently meant for instructors only, your request will be passed on to a sales representative who will then confirm your instructor status and bookstore order.
