How to receive an examination copy: Mail or fax a letter on school letterhead with the book title and 8-digit book number, name of the course, approximate enrollment and when you plan to make an adoption decision regarding the textbook.
Complimentary desk copies of texts are provided as a courtesy when several conditions are met. If a teacher adopts in his/her course a CCH textbook for required student purchase, CCH provides the instructor with a free copy of that book along with ancillary teaching support materials if such exist for the book.
In other cases, CCH provides an examination copy prior to adoption when there is a definite course scheduled and the textbook decision is not yet made. We definitely wish to discuss this with the instructor when such a situation arises.
CCH does not provide free books for personal reference but offers these for purchase at a school discounted rate. For some of our books, CCH does not provide free copies at all but offers them at discounted rate and if the instructor then adopts that book for a class, CCH refunds purchase price when we receive an order for it from the school bookstore.
