Insider Guide Download Process:

  • Click the logo at the bottom of this page. WHEN THE NEXT PAGE OPENS, YOU NEED TO CLICK "DOWNLOAD" IN THE GRAY BOX ON THE RIGHT TO GET TO THE INSIDER GUIDES AVAILABLE FOR DOWNLOADING FREE. Select a Guide Title from that list.
  • This will take you to a page that asks you to enter the user name and password you received from Career Services. Enter it and then click the "Verify" button.
  • An online link to download your encrypted PDF WetFeet Insider Guide will appear. You may click on the link ONE TIME ONLY to assure a single download to the computer you're working on.
  • Once you download the Insider Guide through the Adobe reader, the Insider Guide will be saved to your Adobe Bookshelf (Adobe version 6) or in the Adobe My Digital Editions (Adobe version 7) for future reference.  The Guide is fully printable and savable.
  • If this process does not work for some reason, you should check to make sure you have activated the Digital Rights Management in Adobe. For instructions on how to do this, use the Help in Adobe and search for "Adobe DRM Activator". The process should be automatic for version 7 of Adobe. For version 6, you might need to open the program, choose Tools, eBook Web Services, Adobe DRM Activator. This is a ONE STEP PROCESS PER WORK STATION.
