Examination and Desk Copies
An instructor may receive up to five complimentary desk or examination copies in a 12-month period.
Examination copies are for instructors who are considering ASCD books for course adoption. The examination copy of a particular book will also serve as a desk copy if the book is adopted for the course.
Desk copies are for instructors who have already adopted one or more ASCD books as required reading for a course.
