Print materials (just about everything except for the illustrations and presentations) are provided in PDF format. Two sorts of material are provided in PowerPoint format: 1) a set of lecture presentations organized by text chapter, and 2) a set of most of the illustrations used in the text, organized by chapter. Two items--job aids and test items--are provided in word processing format (.doc) to facilitate your use that involves modifying and editing the material. An additional item--user-contributed resources--may be in any of a variety of formats including word processing, .pdf, and .ppt. If you need any resource in a different file format from those provided, please do not hesitate to request it from your Wiley representative. We will be happy to help you.

We have worked on these materials for both our own teaching and for your use for over many years. We hope they are as helpful to you and your students as they have been to us and ours.
