What is premiumACCESS?

premiumACCESS is your gold standard for using the codes in your State and code review needs. As a digital cloud based subscription service, you’ll have immediate access to your resource books anytime and anywhere there is internet connectivity. An additional bonus is that you can use your premiumACCESS subscription on any internet enabled device!

With the concurrent user feature you can work with your colleagues to view, comment and collaborate on the books that you have purchased. As an individual or team you can highlight, annotate (add images, tables, pdf, hyperlinks to other documents and text) the subscription. You can have a single user concurrent version which will allow for a single individual to view purchased books or have several licenses where multiple users can view books all at once based on the number of licenses purchased.

The Hyperlinking feature which moves you from a specific section to the next with one click makes browsing the codes a breeze! This feature is also available if a reference is made to another book that you own. That hyperlink will take you to that specific point of reference in the book. Selected references in the book are also hyperlinked for your use or purchase.
