Can we print the PDF copy and can it be shared by multiple users. We need a response!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Can a PDF copy be used by different people or is it restricted for a single user?

What are the options if we want to make reference guides available for several people? Can one PDF copy be used on a server? Can one web subscription be shared among multiple people?

Can the web-based reference guide replace the printed/pdf reference guide as a full study guide for the LEED AP exam?

Can web based subscription be considered substitute to reference guide? Does it contain Green Associate exam prep material?

If a web based subscription is purchased, can it be accessed from any pc having web access, or only from the pc from which subscription was purchased?
Is a web based subscription a substitute for pdf of reference guide, and does it contain Green Associate exam preparation materials as well?
