Exam and Desk Copies

Requesting an Examination/Desk Copy

For titles available for course adoption consideration, you’ll find exam/desk copy request links in the left menu of a book’s web page.  You will find these links below the book’s cover image on the lower left side of the book’s title page.  Please follow the relevant link to our online request form.

If you do not see a request link on the book’s title page, contact your local textbook manager (below) to obtain a custom exam/desk copy request form link.

Examination copies are available at the discretion of the MIT Press to qualified instructors of appropriate courses.  We require complete course and affiliation details to consider a request.  We provide complimentary examination copies of up to two titles at one time (per semester).

Desk copies are provided on a complimentary basis to professors who have already adopted a text for course use and placed an order with a university or local bookstore for the texts.
