ASCENT eBooks contain the same content as our corresponding Learning Guides, providing users with a personal, full color electronic copy of the guide, complete with hands-on exercises and downloadable class files. eBooks can be downloaded on multiple devices, and include features such as the ability to make notes and highlights, plus the ability to sync and share those notes with multiple users of the same eBook.

eBooks provide users with a paper-free option to learning the software of their choice. Keyword searches are available within the eBooks and users can choose their preferred layout for viewing the courseware. Similar to the printed guide, eBooks are yours to keep once purchased.

An Instructor Guide provides you with all that you need to teach the training course. It contains all the same instructional content as a Learning Guide, along with the answers to the chapter review questions and timing suggestions to help you in delivering various sections of the course.

The Instructor Guide format is new for ASCENT. As was previously done, you will no longer be receiving any additional downloaded PDF documents containing our Instructor Tools. All information is included in the Instructor Guide and you are no longer required to purchase a separate copy of the Learning Guide.

To be used in conjunction with ASCENT Student Guides, Instructor Tools are downloadable PDF files which contain timing suggestions for delivering the class, plus answers to the questions within the guide. Some Instructor Tools also include overhead presentation files that can be used when teaching a class.

Sold separately from the Student Guides and eBooks, Instructor Tools are an ideal support tool for those teaching the courseware, however, they are available for purchase by anyone who is interested.
