Can I mail in an order? Where can I find an order form?
We do accept mailed in orders with payment information in the form of a check, credit card, or a school purchase order. You may download an order form located in the Explore section at the page footer.
Do you send complimentary samples of your products?
No. There are sample pages available on our website.
Where are the product samples located on your website?
If a sample is available, there will be a link next to the product title. Sample pages are provided for nearly all of our products. Just click on the “View a Sample” link or the magnifying glass located next to a product title.
Who writes the Applied Practice workbooks?
We have in-house writers and we contract with numerous free-lance writers. We contract with experienced, quality teachers and former teachers who conform to our rigid standards. Many are department heads, published writers, and readers for national standardized exams.
How would I cite your publications in my AP Syllabus for the College Board?
To cite our test prep booklets as a resource in your teaching syllabus, you should know that the titles of nearly all our publications begin with “Applied Practice in …” Also, we do not identify individual writers by name, so the author should be cited simply as “Applied Practice, Ltd.” Our headquarters are located in Dallas, Texas, and the year of copyright will vary from one title to another. As a template for citing our books in MLA format, we suggest the following entry for Applied Practice in Wuthering Heights:
Applied Practice, Ltd. Applied Practice in Wuthering Heights. Dallas: Applied Practice, Ltd., 1999.
Who should I contact if I want to write for Applied Practice?
Send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. Include your resume with your contact information, your teaching experience, and a brief statement as to why you want to write for us. Additionally, please attach a set of study questions you have written for any book you teach.
Do you offer your products digitally on CD?
Our e-book and printed workbooks are ideal for an individual teacher’s classroom use. However, if multiple teachers wish to use the same material, then they are required to purchase additional workbooks. Applied Practice does offers campus site licenses, which allows schools and/or districts to load our materials directly onto their server from a custom CD-ROM we will provide to you. By loading our workbooks on a central server, campus or district customers can easily provide teachers quick and easy access to Applied Practice materials, and eliminate annual replenishment needs due to loss and consumption of workbooks. Additionally, a site license may help you qualify for spending allocation in your technology budget.
My school doesn’t allow us to order online. Do you have a catalog from which we can order?
Our home page offers downloadable order forms, as well as an electronic catalog from which you may view and print pages, including an order form. If you are experiencing technical difficulties or would simply prefer to have a full catalog mailed to you, you may select Contact Form under the Contact Us menu and place a checkmark in the “Request Catalog” checkbox.
Do you accept returns or exchanges?
Due to the reproducible nature of our material, we do not accept returns. Please view a sample of your product available on our website prior to your purchase. In cases of obvious purchasing errors, we do allow exchanges within 14 days of purchase of Applied Practice materials. Contact customer service at 866-374-3768 to request an RMA for the exchange; however, please be aware that we do charge a $12 restocking fee per item. This is to help defray the cost of shipping and extra handling.
Please note that we cannot offer exchanges or returns on novels.
