When you place an order for AAT books, or an eBook from any range, your eBook/s will be available to view immediately through either of the following methods:

• You can download your eBook/s to your phone or tablet and read them online or offline by logging in to your Student Zone account via Osborne Books app. The app is free to download. Please note that the app is currently only available on Apple and Android devices.

• You can also view your eBook/s on your PC (non-downloadable) by visiting our website and logging in to your Student Zone account.

If you have not placed an order with us before, you will receive your new account login details in a separate email when you place your first order in our website shop.

If you have obtained your AAT books through your training centre, you can apply for a Student Zone account to access your free eBook/s here.

Updates to eBook content

Osborne Books may occasionally update the content of the books and corresponding eBooks in response to curriculum changes. Where these changes are made the content that you see will automatically update, except where you have downloaded a copy of the book to a device; in this case you can simply re-download the eBook from your library to update it.

Your eBooks are linked to your Student Zone account via the email address you enter during the online checkout process or on your account application form. You must enter the same email address each time you place a new order to ensure that your account is updated correctly with any new purchases. If you have accidentally made a purchase using a different email address, please contact us so that we can move your eBooks to the correct account.
