Frequently Asked Questions

If you have a physical copy of either book and your passcode is unreadable or damaged, please email a photo of the damaged passcode to [email protected], adding the Subject line “Damaged Passcode”. Once email is received and the details verified, support will be provided, and if necessary, a replacement code will be sent.

If the envelope with passcode is missing from the back of the book, you have received a used copy . Please contact the retailer you purchased from to either return the book or request a replacement passcode. If the retailer will not issue you a replacement passcode, you may purchase an ebook through Amazon Kindle or VitalSource and a new code will be provided.

If this is a physical copy of the book, there should be an orange envelope located in the last two pages of the book. There will be a code in the envelope along with additional instructions to take your online test. If your book has a foiled box, then your code is underneath. Gently scratch off the foil using a coin, making sure not to peel it like a sticker. Please use this passcode to take your test and you will use this same passcode to access your results. You will need this passcode to take your retest in 6 months.

If you made your purchase from Amazon Kindle, Audible, Nook or VitalSource, they are responsible for issuing the code and will send the passcode in an additional email after your purchase.

Kindle’s subject line for the email with the passcode is “Your Promotional Code”
