Examination Copy Request Form


Thank you for requesting an examination copy. We will make a print or electronic book available to you for review. You will receive a print book in about two weeks. If you choose an electronic copy, you will have access to the book on your computer or handheld device within 72 hours. If you do not already have a Google Account, you will need to set one up in order to access the book, which can be done here

If you have already adopted the book and need a desk copy, please request that here. Proof of adoption is required.

Print books are only available to customers in North America. However, if you do not live in a GooglePlay participating country, we will send you a print book.

Examination Copies are available for a ninety day period.

If you have any questions, contact us.


Terms of Service

Evaluation Period
Textbooks are made available for a 90-day period. If you plan to adopt the book for your course, please notify SIAM (include the course name(s), number, and level, the expected enrollment, and the semesters/years the course is planned for) and if you prefer a print copy or e-book.

If you decide not to adopt the textbook, you may purchase it at the SIAM member price, which is a 30% discount off of the list price, or you may purchase the e-book from Google Play (e-book pricing reflects a 20% discount off of the list price of the print book).
