Setting up your ASNT ebook
Here are instructions on accessing your ebook in four steps (NOTE: please read and follow all instructions before downloading your ebook. If you skip to Step 4, the ebook will not download properly):
- Get a free Adobe ID.
Go to www.adobe.com and click the sign in link at the top-right. Click the ‘Get an Adobe ID’ link and follow the directions to set up a free account. This Adobe ID is what your ebook will be linked to (see step 4).
- Download and install Adobe Digital Editions.
Available here: https://www.adobe.com/solutions/ebook/digital-editions/download.html.
- Authorize Adobe Digital Editions.
Open Adobe Digital Editions. Under the “Help” menu choose “Authorize Computer” and input the Adobe ID as well as the password that you just created.
- Download your ebook using the link provided in your confirmation email or at MyASNT.
If prompted by your computer, choose to open the application “URLLink.acsm” with Adobe Digital Editions.
The Adobe ID enables you to access your ASNT ebook on multiple devices through Adobe Digital Editions. Books that are purchased on a computer that has been activated with Digital Editions anonymously (without an ID) will belong to that computer, whereas those purchased with an ID will belong to that ID on any device. To learn more about content portability, please see “Can I read an ASNT ebook on a device other than my computer?”
You can create your Adobe ID when prompted within Adobe Digital Editions, or go directly to the Adobe.com, select “My Adobe” in the top-right corner, then click on “My Adobe ID” and follow the instructions for creating an Adobe ID. https://www.adobe.com/account/sign-in.adobedotcom.html?returnURL=https://www.adobe.com/account/account-information.html

The first recommended step is to try downloading Adobe Digital Editions using a different browser:
- Google Chrome: https://www.google.com/chrome/
- Mozilla Firefox: http://www.mozilla.com/firefox/
- Microsoft Internet Explorer: http://www.microsoft.com/windows/internet-explorer/default.aspx
- Apple Safari: http://www.apple.com/safari/download
If that does not solve the problem, please visit this page for more troubleshooting guides from Adobe.
Once purchased, you may forward the “Access your ASNT ebook” email to the person you are purchasing the book for; however, please note that you must not open the ebook first yourself. The person who wants to access and read the ebook will need to set up Adobe Digital Editions and open the book with Digital Editions authorized to their Adobe ID. Once the ebook has been opened, it cannot be transferred to another Adobe ID account or otherwise redistributed.
No, ebook purchases are nonrefundable.
