How do I print a quiz?
When you are registered and logged in you will see a "Print as PDF" button at the bottom of every quiz and clicking the button will send a message scurrying to our software to prepare a print for you.  Two printable sheets will be got ready - one that gives only the questions and the other that gives both questions and answers.  You can print either or both as many times as you like.
Are the quizzes copyrighted?
Yes.  All our quizzes are subject to copyright restriction.  We allow our customers to print the quizzes provided that they are reproduced in the exact .pdf form that our software generates i.e. every sheet must show the QuizArea details at the bottom.  Use of the material without showing the QuizArea details is a breach of our copyright.
