Obtaining a PDF Reader

The Acrobat PDF file format is the de facto standard for delivering formatted documents widely so that they will display and print with all formatting and fonts as designed, regardless of the user's computer setup. For that reason we make use of the PDF format on this site.

PDF stands for 'Portable Document Format' and was devised by the Adobe company. It is the file format for Adobe's portable document system called Acrobat. Adobe sell a complete Acrobat package for several hundred dollars, which is intended for manipulating PDF multiple document files. It includes a system for PDF files to be created from almost any word processor or other application program. You only need the free Reader to read our PDF files.

Adobe make their Acrobat Reader program available for free download, in versions for Microsoft Windows, Apple Macintosh, Linux and Unix systems.

Below is a link to the Adobe Acrobat Reader download site. As at 2015 it is an 80 Mb download

I suggest you UN-tick any extra options such as 'Google toolbar' and ' McAffee Security Scan Plus'.
