Exam & Desk Copy Policy

Perseus Books is pleased to provide complimentary desk and examination copies to qualified instructors in the US and Canada who are considering a title for course adoption.

How to Request an Exam or Desk Copy

If you know the book you’re looking for, you can search for it by ISBN, title, or author. Or, browse our full title list by subject and course title using the academic discipline list.

Once you’ve found a book you’d like to request, select “Request Desk/Exam Copy” on the book page.


If you place an exam copy request for a book that has not yet been published, we will backorder your request for twelve (12) months. If the book you requested is temporarily out of stock, we will backorder your request for 90 days.

If you have any question regarding your order, please email
