What is an eBook?
An eBook is a digital version of a printed book that can be downloaded and read in a number of ways on multiple types of devices (for example: a desktop or laptop computer, or tablet).
Do I need a certain type of device to use an eBook?
No – eBooks work on multiple types of devices such as:
- Desktop computers
How much do eBooks cost?
eBooks are $16.50 each.
Can I pay for an eBook in a different method to credit card?
No, eBooks can only be purchased with a credit card.
Do I need to buy the print Learner guide as well as the eBook? Are there any differences between the two?
No – our eBooks are digital versions of the print learner guide which means they are identical. You can buy both versions separately if you like.
Can I still buy a hard copy learner guide?
Yes, print learner guides are still available for purchase.
To purchase a print learner guide, simply search for the unit you’d like on Aspire’s online store and follow the steps to place an order. Once the order is processed, you should receive the print learner guide within 7 to 10 business days, depending on stock levels and your location (you can select Express Post postage for a faster delivery if you are within the Express Post Network dispatched from Melbourne).
Can I print my eBook out?
No you cannot. If you would like a hard copy of a learner guide you will need to purchase one through our online store.
Can I keep the eBook forever?
No. Each eBook has a three-year lifespan from the date you buy it. This means you can use your eBook as often and whenever you want for three years. After three years, the eBook will be inaccessible.
Can I send my eBook to a friend?
No you cannot. Your eBook is linked to your chosen device and cannot be forwarded or emailed to another person. Each eBook should be used by one student only.
