We’re currently migrating from printed to digital courseware. Some courseware is already available in digital, while other books remain in printed form. To find out if this course is digital, call us on +33 (0) 181 22 44 68.

There are several benefits of easy-to-use digital courseware: downloads are immediate, and you’ll always have your courseware available wherever you are.

You can choose to download the courseware to your own device, or borrow one of ours.

Considering a Microsoft course? Always have the most up-to-date Microsoft digital courseware with ‘Fresh Editions’. This gives you access to all versions of digital courseware – you’ll receive updates and revisions of your textbook, at no charge, for the life of that course.
