Desk and Examination Copies

ASM Press textbooks are available to instructors for a 60-day examination period.

The fastest, easiest way to review any of ASM Press' best-selling textbooks is to request access to an etextbook. You will receive electronic access for an examination period of 60 days. Should you decide to make our textbook a requirement for your course, please contact [email protected] with adoption confirmation, and we will grant you electronic access for 3 years. To confirm adoption, please provide one of the following: campus bookstore name and phone number, bookstore adoption receipt, or a copy of your class syllabus that shows the book is a requirement. When adoption is confirmed, your exam copy is then your desk copy.

Most ASM Press etextbooks are hosted on Vital Source Bookshelf and CourseSmart. These platforms integrate with the Learning Management Systems used by many educational institutions.

If you prefer a hard copy, the examination copy book will be sent with an invoice on a 60-day approval.

  • If you do not adopt the book, return the book within 60 days; if you choose to keep the book, pay the invoice.
  • If you adopt the book, it becomes your desk copy; return the invoice within 60 days indicating the name of the bookstore and date of your adoption order.  

Click on the Request Desk or Examination Copy link to fill out the request form. eBook access is activated within 24 business hours. Print books may take up to 2-4 weeks to deliver.
