Request an Exam Copy

Exam copies are issued to faculty members wanting to review a title for possible course adoption. Exam copies are invoiced at a discounted rate with 90 days to review the title. The invoice will be canceled if you adopt the book(s) for your class and tell us with which bookstore you placed your textbook order and how many copies were ordered. If you decide not to adopt the text, it must be returned to us in saleable condition or you may keep the book and pay the invoice in full.
