Instructors may request examination copies of books they wish to consider for course adoption. Complimentary copies of up to three books are available for a nonrefundable shipping and handling charge. These books need not be returned, nor will instructors be billed for them. (Note, however, that the Press reserves the right to limit the availability of exam copies.) Here's what to do:
1. Write your request on departmental letterhead; the address on your letterhead will be your shipping address unless you instruct otherwise. Include the following information:
Name of your course
Name of your campus bookstore
2. Limit your request to three titles in total.
3. Calculate the nonrefundable shipping and handling charge:
For paperbacks: $5.00 per volume
For hardcovers: $10.00 per volume
4. Include payment for the shipping and handling charge with your request. Make checks payable to University of Pennsylvania Press. Should you prefer to pay by credit card, please include the following information with your request:
Card type (all major credit cards accepted)
Name on card
Card security code
(The card security code is located on the back of MasterCard, Visa, and Discover credit or debit cards and is typically a separate group of 3 digits to the right of the signature strip. On American Express cards, the four-digit code is printed above the card number on the front.)
