How Does It Work?
Like any other online market, you simply go to their web store and search their products by category for the type of topic you are interested in learning about. These categories are very diverse, from Arts and Film to Home and Garden to Maths, Philosophy, Politics, Religion, and more.
Within each category is a wide variety of subcategories, and many of the books you can choose from are a part of a series of levels, so that beginners and all other levels of learners can find the text that is most appropriate for them.
The texts available from Teach Yourself range in price, often between $20 and $55, depending on the topic you have chosen to study and the level of the study you are purchasing.
Unfortunately the Teach Yourself Terms and Conditions do not reference or detail any potential Refund, Return, or Guarantee Policies. Customers who are concerned about what recourse they may have if they are unhappy with what they receive should contact Customer Service in advance of making a purchase.
