How do I access my online reference guide?
2009 Edition Hard Copy reference guides come with a 30-day access to download a non-printable PDF version of the guide. 2009 Edition reference guides are also available for purchase in E-book format, which comes with a 30-day access to download a printable PDF version of the guide.
The PDF reference guides are intended for personal use only and should not be stored on any shared network.
To access your PDF reference guide, please log in and go to your account. In the left-hand side navigation, select "Purchases" and then "Online access." The pdf will be available on this page.

Hard Copies of versions 2.0, 2.1, or 2.2 reference guides come with indefinite access to an online non-printable version of the reference guide.
