Requesting Text Exam Copies

Brandeis University Press will send you an examination copy of the book you wish to consider for course use. Please mail or fax your request on your department letterhead, specifying the title of the course, your expected enrollment, the semester or quarter in which the course will be offered, the course level (undergraduate or graduate) and any textbooks now currently being used for this course. According to our 90-day policy, we will also send you an invoice at a 20% academic discount, plus shipping charges, payable in 90 days. Should you adopt the book, return the invoice with proof of adoption, and the invoice will be cancelled. If you do not adopt the book, you may return it and have the invoice canceled or purchase it at the 20% discount price.

Requesting Desk Copies

If you have adopted a Brandeis University Press book for course use, and your textbook store has ordered at least ten copies of the book, you are entitled to one free copy of the book for your own use.
