  Where Do I Get Adobe®
        Reader®?

           www.adobe.com
• On the Web, you will see the
  following button on many sites.



• Clicking on the button above will
  take you to the Adobe® Web site
  where you can download Adobe®
  Reader®.

    Download Adobe®
  Reader® from eCampus

              eCampus DOWNLOADS page
              to obtain Adobe® Reader®.

             Open or Save
       When you see a PDF document on the Web,
       such as on this rEsourceSM page, click on it.
       (Click on the underlined link, not on the PDF
       icon.) Be sure you already have Adobe®
       Reader® 6.0 on your computer.




      When asked if you want to OPEN or SAVE the
      file, always choose SAVE. Then SAVE the PDF
      file to your local computer. If you OPEN the file,
      it takes longer, and you must OPEN the file
      again every time you want to read it. Your
      search (index) features are also limited if you
      OPEN instead of doing a SAVE.

             Print or View?
    On this rEsource page, the same reading material
    is available in two formats. It is wise to download
    BOTH formats, although you will have access to
    both versions as long as you are a student or
    faculty member at University of Phoenix.




      PRINT format is made specifically if you want to
      print out the reading material. It is typeset in
      commercial quality so it looks great on paper,
      but it is difficult to read on the screen.

      VIEW format is made specifically for viewing on
      a computer screen. You may change the style
      and size of the font. Adobe® Reader® will also
      read the text to you.

             How to Open
• When you SAVE the PDF file, be
  sure to note where you are saving
  it.
• When you are ready to OPEN the
  file, locate the file where you saved
  it and double click on the file.




                                        Double click on
                                        the PDF file to
                                            open it.

  within Adobe® Reader®.

              File Functions
             Use these buttons to open,
              save, print, or email the
                     PDF file.

                      Search
        This is the powerful search tool, which allows
          you to search this document or multiple
             documents for words and phrases.

                      Search


     Clicking the
     SEARCH button
     opens this search
     window where
     you can search
     this document or
     ALL PDF
     documents in a
     folder.




       Because Adobe® Reader® will search ALL
       documents in a folder, it is a good idea to
       save all related PDF files in a common
       folder. For example, create a folder called
       GEN 300 and save all your GEN 300 PDF
       files in that folder.
