Frequently Asked Questions

Q:  When were the study guides last updated?
A:  We update every fall when the new content guide outlines come out – EVERY YEAR!

Q:  Will the study guides work for the classes or conference/exams?
A:  YES!  The same subject areas are covered in all three credit options.

Q: The file ‘hangs’ and won’t download.
A:  Shut down and restart your device.  Try downloading again.  If the file still will not download, change to a different browser (if using Chrome, change to FireFox, if using Edge, change to Chrome, etc.) and check that you have a good WiFi signal.

Q: I can't download the Audio to my iPhone!
A: iPhone & iPad users will need to download & install iZip or WinZip from iTunes to be able to open the audio .zip folders.  Save the audio zip file, open iZip, scroll down to 'downloads' and click on the audio zip file.

Q: I get an error message that the 'link is expired'.
A:  Per the download instructions, your download link will expire after you have accessed it 3 times or after 2 weeks.   If you are having a problem, and you had to repeatedly retry your download causing your link to expire, please email - we will be glad to help or reset your link for you.  When emailing, stating 'I can't download' doesn't help us discover or solve your problem - Be specific on the steps you took before the error or problem occurred.  Note your operating system, browser, and any error message received.  

Q:  How do I print individual pages from the PDF study guide?
A:   Download the FREE 'How to use your study guide' PDF file on the study guides page.
Each study guide PDF has an index.  Click on the little 'bookmark' ribbon on the left of the Adobe screen - it looks like a ribbon you would use in a book to mark your place, there should also be a 'paperclip’ icon on the side bar.  When you click the bookmark ribbon you will see the index.  Click on the first entry or section and note the page number at the top of the page, it will say something similar to 2 / 1210 (page 2 of 1210 pages).  Click on the next section in the index and look at the page numbers at the top - it will say something similar to 61 / 1210.  The first section is pages 2 through 60.  Most printers will have a section asking what pages you wish to print such as 'all pages', 'current page', 'select pages...'.  Type in 2-60 and click print - and your printer will print the first selected section.

Q:  I've found an error or two in your material!
A:  Please report all errors to us in a courteous and professional manner.  We will correct all reported errors immediately!  We try very hard to be as accurate as possible, but we are human and do make mistakes.  We apologize if there are errors and appreciate your diligence in letting us know!  FYI - Even expensive professional textbooks have been known to have errors or typos - it is unnecessary to be rude about a typo that our spell-check software did not correct.

If you use an iPad or Kindle you absolutely need to read this.
Our downloadable books are supplied as a PDF file. This generally doesn't cause Macintosh or Windows computer users any issues: just click on the Save File option instead of Open with options when your browser displays your download options.  We have noted that "Chrome" browser will delay or stop downloads!  You may need to change browsers.

But when you buy downloadable books from the browser on your tablet or phone and then click on an email with the download link that you receive, on mobile devices you're typically going to see the PDF in your browser with no save options. While the file will show up and be readable, this is only temporary and will disappear when you navigate elsewhere, forcing you to download the book again. Not only will you run out of downloads doing this, but you'll be upping your data usage on your device and encountering delays each time you want to read it. Neither of those are good things.
