WHERE is my book, where is my download link?
There are several reasons why you may not have received the
automatically sent RECEIPT containing the download link and password for the
book that you ordered. Here are some things to look for:
1. You may have your browser security settings set too high. I suggest that you set it to
"medium". Also, make sure that your “cookies” are “enabled”.
2. You may not have Adobe Acrobat Reader at all on your computer. To get your free copy go to
3. You may have more than ONE version of Adobe Acrobat Reader on your computer. If so, get rid of
both of them and then install only the latest version for your system.
4. You may have a firewall on
your computer that does not permit downloads of files. Correct the settings or speak to
your school technician about adjusting the firewall settings.

this is causing a problem.
6. If you ordered through your school computer, your school server or your ISP may be blocking
CONTACT. If this is the case you need to ask them to unblock
7. If you are using a Yahoo.com email address, there is a chance that your RECEIPT email may
have been placed in the “bulk”
folder. Please have a look there to see if you can locate this email that
contains your download link and password.

Bit About PDF Files:
Format (PDF) files provide consistent results when printed. A PDF document
will have a .pdf filename extension (example: filename.pdf).
In order to view and print PDF files, you need Adobe® Acrobat®
Reader™ installed on
your computer. Most computers already have this software installed, but if
yours does not, you can download Acrobat Reader for free from the Adobe web
site. Click the "Get Acrobat Reader" graphic below or visit
PDF documents can be downloaded and saved to
a local drive. Larger documents are best viewed and/or printed after
downloading. If you
would prefer to read a document off-line at a later time you should save the file to your computer.
How to OPEN:
Locate the file on
your computer and then simply double-click it. The file will then open up in
Adobe Reader at which point you will be able to navigate through the pages
Explorer Users: If you
have Acrobat Reader installed, and are using Internet Explorer browser, you may have trouble displaying
large PDF documents directly from the web. If any PDF link displays only a
blank screen when clicked, right-click on the link (click and hold on a
Macintosh), and save the file to your hard drive. Then open the PDF file in
Acrobat from your hard drive.

extension of .zip. Go to www.winzip.com to get your free version of the

· If you get error messages this usually
means that you have MORE than ONE version of Adobe Acrobat Reader installed on your computer. What you
need to do is delete them both and then re-install the latest version
appropriate for your version of Windows.
· Make sure you have the latest version of the Acrobat viewer installed (5.0 or 6.0). You can get this software for
www.Adobe.com. This is the most common solution
to the problem of viewing the .pdf files. If you have trouble installing or
using Acrobat Reader, please visit the Adobe support page at
· You may see a blank page when you try to view a PDF file
after clicking on a link to a PDF file. This problem occurs when Adobe
Acrobat Reader opens inside of your browser window rather than as a separate
application. You may want to save to disk and then open the file (see instructions
Sometimes the screen may
even say "done" when it is not done. So, please just wait patiently for it to download completely. Some files are about up to 7 MB in size and it will take some time for each to be saved to your hard drive.
· AOL users, please use
Internet Explorer browser to download your files and NOT the AOL browser.

opened in a different window. Try minimizing your open programs one-by-one,

if you have a slow connection or the server is very busy or the PDF is very large you may receive a blank window until the
PDF will display.
· Refresh the window you are viewing.
· Open file in another web browser
(Netscape or Internet Explorer), if you have one installed.
HOW TO PRINT
When printing Adobe Acrobat PDF files from within your web
browser, do NOT use the web browser print facility. Instead, use the print
button at the left end
of the special Adobe Acrobat tool bar, which appears immediately above the
viewing window (see illustration to right). You will then get a
"Print" pop-up window which will give you several options,
including the option to print the entire document, or you can specify 1 or
more pages to print.
It is also highly recommended that PDF files be printed on a PostScript® printer, if one is available. Although PDF
files may print legibly on other printers, a PostScript® printer will ensure
a correct rendering of the document.
If you have Acrobat Reader installed but have trouble printing a particular document, try selecting

your system displays the print options window.
