After reviewing the item information, click the "Add to Cart" button to add the title to your shopping cart.


Continue searching for more titles OR checkout - by clicking on the "Checkout" link from your shopping cart or the link at the top of the page.


Enter your information and submit the order.


You will receive a confirmation that your order has been received via e-mail, provided your e-mail address is correct.

Shipping

How much will shipping cost?

Please review shipping charges before submitting your order at checkout.

Will I be charged more if some of the items I ordered are back ordered & need to be shipped separately?

No – shipping costs are based on the total number of items of ordered per order, regardless of whether the order has to be shipped in one package or multiple packages.


Guaranteed Return Policy

What is your return policy?

You may return most new, unopened items within 30 days of delivery for a full refund. We'll also pay the return shipping costs if the return is a result of our error (you received an incorrect or defective item, etc.).

You should expect to receive your refund within four weeks of giving your package to the return shipper, however, in many cases you will receive a refund more quickly. This time period includes the transit time for us to receive your return from the shipper (5 to 10 business days), the time it takes us to process your return once we receive it (3 to 5 business days), and the time it takes your bank to process our refund request (5 to 10 business days).

Search

How do I search for titles?

You may browse the categories listed on the sidebar menu. Or, you may use the comprehensive search engine which is located at the top of the sidebar of every page.
In this box, you may search by Title, Author, Keywords, or ISBN number.

Do you have any tips for creating proper search phrases?

Yes – here are some guidelines you can use in your search:
Do not use conjunctions such as AND and OR. Use the drop down menus to narrow the search.
You don't need to type out a complete title. Try just two or three of the words in the title.
All the Words: returns all items which contain the exact words entered . The words don't have to be together or in the same order to match. But they all must match.
Exact Phrase: returns all items which match the phrase exactly. The entire phrase and word order are matched.
