Examination copies

You may examine any paperback when you provide some important course information. Orders submitted without this information will not be processed. Limit: three titles per instructor per semester. Audio/video materials which are sold separately are not eligible.

Please note: US deliveries are shipped via media mail and may take 2 to 3 weeks. If there is a rush need for a book, you may arrange to pay for expedited shipping (via UPS) by calling 800-537-5487. Please do not submit your request online. Call 800-537-5487 directly to submit your request.

If a book is available in hardcover only, we have a 60-day loan policy. You may examine hardcover books for possible course adoption for 60 days, after which you may: 1. Adopt for course use and keep the book free of charge provided that you return the invoice with the name of the bookstore that has ordered or will order 10 or more copies. 2. Buy the book at 20% discount. 3. Return the book in saleable condition and pay nothing. This option is not offered if a paperback edition of the title is in print.
