NEW! Now you can buy for multiple students!

Whether you’re buying a course for yourself, or buying for other(s), we’ve got you covered – simply enter the product quantity of the number of *students* that will be studying and taking the exams while you’re checking out.  Our system will send each student entered in the checkout process their own unique login credentials directly and individually.  Each student will be able to log into our Student Center, download their courses to study and take their exams when they’re ready.



This distinguishes between purchasers and students. Are you both the student and the purchaser?

If you’re simply buying for yourself, then you are both the purchaser and the student, and you will just supply your own first name, last name and email in the “student information” blanks in checkout.  The system will ask for your billing information after that.

Are you purchasing a course for someone else?

If, on the other hand, you’re buying for someone else or for a group of people, then make sure you put in the number of students that will be taking the test in the quantity, and then enter the first name, last name and email of each student in the sets of blanks that will appear before you proceed to check out.  You will enter your contact and  billing information on the next screen.
