Getting the Books You Need to Build Your Program
After developing the curriculum and defining the program sequence, the next step is to select the textbooks for each course. Choosing a textbook is an important part of course design because it guides the lecture content and cultivates a positive learning experience. Springer Publishing provides a simple, six step process for selecting the best books for your course.
Step 1: Request an Exam Copy
If you are an instructor who would like to consider a book as a possible required textbook for a course, request a free Exam Copy at www.springerpub.com.
Information Required for Requesting an Exam Copy:
Instructor’s Name, Title, School, and Contact Information
Course Name, Number, Enrollment, and Start Date
Note: Your book should arrive in less than two weeks if it is published. If you’ve requested a book that will publish in the future, the book will ship at time of publication.
Step 2: Review the Book
Carefully review the contents of the book to determine if it satisfactorily covers the subject matter of the course. Share your comments with your textbook representative.
Step 3:Make a Decision
If you choose to adopt the book, move on to Step 4.
Have your university’s bookstore order the required course books for your students to purchase.
Step 5: Request Instructor’s Copy
