PDF Downloads for Students

When you buy from this site you are buying direct from the authors of your textbooks, so you can be sure that you are getting the correct material. You can buy PDF downloads of both Digital Multimedia, 3rd Edition and Web Design: A Complete Introduction on this site.

Many people are confused about the legality of downloading PDF copies of books. Basically, if a book is by a living author or is still in copyright, downloading “free” copies from pirate sites and other online repositories is illegal. More importantly, it means that the author doesn’t get paid for their work.

Prices start at just 99 pence (GBP) for individual chapters of a book and 49 pence (GBP) for a set of Illustrated Pocket PDF slides. Complete sets offer substantial discounts if you need to buy all the chapters – or all the slides – for a textbook.

Some files are available free, so that you can test the downloads service before spending any money. For more detailed information, please read the pages on Buying Downloads and Free Downloads.

We also provide a full range of services for lecturers and instructors to help support your course. This means that in many cases your lecturer or instructor is also using this site. Lecturers and instructors are able to create custom Course Bundles of selected PDF material for you to buy. This provides even better discounts, so if your lecturer has not already created a Course Bundle you could suggest that they do so.

Payment for Downloads

Payment for downloads is processed at the PayPal Web site, but you do NOT need a PayPal account to buy downloads. If you already have a PayPal account you are welcome to use it, but you can also pay by bank debit card or credit card in the usual way, without creating a PayPal account.

Using PayPal means that you – the customer – are entitled to all the protection which PayPal provides for buyers, in addition to our own guarantees. It is also a very secure way to pay, as it means you never have to enter any financial information on this site.

Voucher Codes

If you are studying through an online course or certain other courses, your course tutor or administrator may have provided you with a voucher code to enable you to download PDF material from this site. Please follow the instructions which you have been given. If you have any questions, or experience any difficulties using your voucher code or account, just contact us. We are always happy to help.
