Hi,
When I download the unit, I get 75% of the pages as blank with black blocks through them. I've tried to download it several times on three different computers. Do you have any suggestions?

Thanks!
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  March 21, 2013Smart Chick answered:
You can email me and I can try to send it that way as well! indiansprings18@yahoo.com

If you're using a Mac: This sometimes happens when PDFs are opened in the Mac's native PDF program ('Preview') instead of Adobe Reader. So you'll need to open this with the latest Adobe Reader which can be downloaded from here: http://get.adobe.com/reader/otherversions/

IMPORTANT PART! :) Don't open the file by clicking on it (as this will automatically open it with Preview). Instead, launch Adobe Reader then go to 'File'-->'Open...', and select the PDF that way.

If you're on a PC, please open a ticket with customer support.

Is there an answer key available for this unit?

On  March 8, 2013Smart Chick answered:
No, there is not an answer key included at this time. If you are familiar with the book and have read it, you should have no trouble with the answers.
On  February 19, 2013UpperElExplorer (TpT Seller) asked:
Is there a reason why huge portions of this unit are blurred and I am unable to view it? I'm not very happy after spending $10 on this!
