I can't set up an account because it says my email is already in use. What do I do?
This is probably because you have signed up to receive updates or newsletters from us and therefore already have an existing account with us. You can use the same email and password to login to the shopping cart at the checkout. You will be prompted to enter some extra details like your shipping address, phone number and so on. If you can't remember your password, just click the 'forgotten your password?' link and your password will be emailed to you (you can then change the password later).
When is my credit card charged?
Your credit card will be charged on the next working day after you have placed your order.
Please note: the charge on your credit card will be from Pearson Australia Group Pty Ltd.
How long does it take for my order to arrive?
