Prices & VAT

The price displayed is inclusive of UK VAT at the appropriate rate. VAT is not charged on books but it is charged on CDs, DVDs and digital products. Prices are updated regularly. All online transactions on this website are charged in GBP sterling. Exchange rates vary and McGraw-Hill Education has no control over the rate used by credit card companies. Subsequently, the exchange rate and the conversion amount shown are approximations. We endeavour to ensure correct prices are shown on our websites but we reserve the right to change and correct prices. In this instance, we will ensure the customer is notified and asked if they wish to proceed with their purchase.
