The download is approximately 14MB, so a cable or DSL connection is recommended. To get the file onto a smartphone, download to your computer and copy it to your phone.

If downloading directly to a phone is your only option, here are some tips for successful download:

  • Make sure you are on a strong WiFi connection and not using data from your service provider.
  • Make sure you have sufficient storage on your device. The file is just shy of 14mb.
  • Restart your device and download.
  • The size of the file is just shy of 14MB, so be sure to allow the downloader to run completely until the entire file is downloaded . Unfortunately, sometimes there is not much to indicate that the download is working until it is complete. If on a desktop computer, It is helpful to watch your download folder and wait for it to return a file size. On a mobile device, wait for your device to ask you what you would like to do with the downloaded file. It could take a few minutes.
  • Clicking the link before the download is complete restarts the download, decreases your allotted attempts and results in a partial download that, when clicked, will report that the file was not able to be opened.

If you have an iPhone: it is recommended that you first install the free "Adobe Reader" (sometimes buggy), OUR FAVORITE, "PDF Reader", or iBooks application before downloading the PDF to your phone. Upon first view of the PDF on your iPhone, choose "save to iBooks".

On an Android: Your device will say (briefly) that the download completed. The file will be in your tools folder called "downloads" where you can touch it to open it.
