I downloaded my ebook/epub, but it won't open on my computer; why not?
The free application, Adobe Digital Editions, must be downloaded in order to access the downloaded content. You will not be able to read your ebook/epub with a .pdf reader.
Can I pay with a purchase order?
Yes, if you are a school, organization, or business, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your polite inquiry. Please do not fax the purchase orders.
What's the best way to get in contact?
Email is usually the fastest route or by calling the office during business hours (10 A.M. to 5 P.M., Monday through Friday
). Please note NCHS is not open on weekends or university holidays.
I would like an exam copy to review before purchase. How can I get this?
If you are a certified school teacher
, we offer a special review program to send an exam copy of one of our units for you to review prior to purchase. Please submit a request, include the name of your school, the grade you teach and the NCHS title you would like to review.
If you decide to keep the copy we send you, you will be charged for the unit. However, if you decide not to keep the examination copy, you must return the unit in saleable condition (no creases, binding in tact, no highlighting/mark-ups; i.e., must in brand-new or like-new condition).
How do I download classroom texts (E-books/ePubs) for student use with an order that includes a Classroom License?
- Log in to http://nchs.ss.ucla.edu with the same account information used for the initial purchase of the downloadable text and accompanying classroom license.
- Go to the tab "My Account".
- Go to the tab "My Downloadable Products".
- Once you have downloaded the product for yourself (note the folder you downloaded the ePub/E-book to) the license allows you to put your copy in a Dropbox or other virtual "Locker" to share with your student.
