Email

You will want a dependable email to transfer your assignments, ask questions, get DBI updates, and receive the results of all your hard work.

If you have a reliable email already, that's great. Make sure DBI is in your address box so we don't accidently end up in the spam box.

If you don't we recommend Gmail. It has proven dependable for many of our students. A word or advice, when you create a username pick something with your name in it. This makes it much easier to identify you. We don't want you in the spam box either.

You cab sign up for Gmail for free at: mail.google.com

Adobe Acrobat

Many of the files we will send you will be in pdf format. While most computers come with some sort of pdf reader on them, some do not. Adobe offers you a free version of their reader, Acrobat, so that you can read our files easily. You will not be able to edit our documents with the free version, but you will be able to see them and print them. Files that often need to be typed directly on (like study questions and registration forms) are offered in both pdf and MS Word formats.

You can download you free copy of Adobe Acrobat at:
