How do I view it?

The program is delivered both online and is also downloadable for offline use. Apart from their delivery method, both programs are identical.


Some versions of the book have a CD-ROM enclosed with it. If you are using Internet Explorer 8 or other recent browsers, you are advised to download the program from here rather than use the CD-ROM.

Some functionality not working with the CD-ROM?
Some new browsers do not allow full functionality when you use the CD-ROM. If this is the case, do not use the CD-ROM but download the same program, updated for the latest browsers including Internet Explorer 8, from here.

My book doesn’t have a CD-ROMFrom 2010 reprints of Engineering Mathematics do not have a CD-ROM. You can download the Personal Tutor for offline use here or use the online version here. We have stopped delivering the program via CD-ROM because learners are increasingly turning to the internet for delivery of programs and we can update the program as browser environments change, which is impossible on an already replicated CD-ROM.
