Course Adoption

Examination Copy Policy

Examination copies of paperback books only will be sent to an instructor considering a book for classroom adoption. Requests may be faxed or mailed and must be on department letterhead and include the following information: title and author, course title and number, expected enrollment, semester the course will be taught, instructor’s name, and name and address of the institution.

An “approval invoice” will be included with the exam copy for the list press less a 10% discount. If the book is adopted as a text and an order is received for 10 or more copies within 90 days, it may be kept as a free desk copy. If it is not adopted, the book may be purchased at the discounted price or returned in saleable condition, without obligation, within the 90-day period. Books will be sent to the school address only. Please allow 4-6 weeks for delivery. For more information, contact Tom Post.

Desk copies will be sent to an instructor who has placed an order for 10 or more copies with a bookstore. Each request must be made on a “Desk Copy Request Form” (provided by the bookstore) or on departmental letterhead. Include the following information: title and author, course title and number, name of bookstore where order was placed, and name and shipping address of instructor. Please allow 4-6 weeks for delivery. For more information, contact Tom Post.
