QuestionWhy don't I get the DVD / CD-ROM version of my book at the same time I receive my print version?
Answer
The primary reason is that each print book is printed as soon as the production of that particular book is finished. The printing and distribution doesn't depend on the timing of other books.

As soon as a particular book is printed, we immediately ship it to you.

For CD/DVDs, we often have several titles updating on a CD/DVD in any given month. As a result, we must wait until all of the books are complete before the CD/DVD can be manufactured and any of the CD/DVDs are delivered to you.

For example, a CD/DVD manufactured on the 30th of the month might include titles that were finished on the 5th of the month all the way up to those finished on the 25th of the month. In some cases, that means that a CD/DVD version can follow a print book by as much as 3 to 4 weeks.

If you own both versions and the timing difference causes major confusion to your staff (e.g., they're not sure which version to use), you might consider waiting to use either version until you have both versions in hand.

We constantly strive to ensure that both the print and CD/DVD versions are delivered to you well in advance of common critical dates for the particular topic.
