Section 1: Getting Started

Pardon the pun, but there is a lot to think about when you decide to download Pearson eBooks.

Are you a first-time user?

If so, we recommend checking out the information below from our Help Center first to get a better idea of what to expect:

First of all, your work might not be eligible for eBook service and if that’s the case, your eBook will not be available to you until you reach the appropriate number of reads.

If you have already previously had Pearson eBook access and use it regularly, you’ll need to reach the number of reads outlined below, in order to access your eBook.

How many reads do you need?

Under the guidelines below, you’ll need to provide the total number of digital eBook readings you’ve had with us in the last six months.

Downloading Your Pearson eBooks

When you first start using Pearson eBooks, you’ll be prompted to download your materials. Just click “Download My Materials.”

When you have everything ready to go, go to your “My Documents” folder and click “Pearson eBooks,” or click “Download Materials.”

Also, as mentioned earlier, you can save your eBooks offline if you want to, so you won’t have to go through a download process every time you want to use them. This will save you some time.
