What's the difference between exam copies and desk copies?
Exam copies are books being considered for adoption as a required student text in an applicable college course. Desk copies are for a professor who has adopted the book for their course and has not previously received an exam or desk copy of the adopted text.

Do I have to return my exam copy if I don't adopt the book?
No.

I received an invoice with my exam copies. I thought they were complimentary.
What you received with your order is a packing slip. This allows you to check your slip against what you've received. Packing slips will also indicate if a book is unavailable and provide the date of expected shipment when applicable. Invoices are mailed under separate cover and will show an amount due on the bottom right hand side. If you receive an invoice for an exam/desk copy with an amount to be paid, please contact the college department.
