You can request an exam copy, also called a teacher's edition, of any of our textbooks at to consider for use in your courses. Only registered and verified instructors can receive free exam copies, and they should not be sold to bookstores or book resellers. If you don't yet have an existing account with Macmillan, it can take up to two business days to verify your status as an instructor.

We are also happy to provide desk copies and additional teaching materials to qualified adopters of our text books. Because these books and materials are frequently meant for instructors only, your request will be passed on to a sales representative who will then confirm your instructor status and bookstore order.

Not in North America? For sample copies, online access, and customer support for all of our Macmillan Learning imprints and technology products, please visit:
