Downloading eBooks and ePatterns

After purchasing an eProduct, you can find it in three ways:

  1. Click the "download" link after completing checkout.
  2. Use the link in the email you receive from us. 
  3. Find it by signing in, visiting the account page and selecting "View my downloads."

After downloading, you’ll be prompted to either “save” or “open” a file.

If you select “save,” you’ll be prompted to choose a location to save your download. Be sure to select a location you’ll remember when the download is complete (such as your desktop). After the download is complete, double-click the file from the location you saved it to (for example, your desktop). The file will open in your PDF reader.

If you select “open,” allow the file to download and open, and then save the file to a location you’ll remember.
