The Pearson Education User Group Program provides qualified user groups with product news, discounted prices on products, free review copies in exchange for reviews, marketing materials, and promotional giveaways. Housed on InformIT.com, the program represents Pearson Education imprints and well-known technology brands of Addison-Wesley Professional, Cisco Press, Exam Cram, IBM Press, Prentice Hall, Que Publishing, and Sams Publishing.
To apply, leaders of legitimate groups should register to be considered. Once we verify your information, the user group will be qualified and considered active.
All active groups receive a discount membership code, a link on our user group site, a link to a welcome page that lists program benefits and downloadable materials, opportunities to provide feedback through surveys and become bloggers, and more! Groups with face-to-face meetings will also obtain a spot on a topical "review copy" mailing list; group leaders can use review copies to help boost meeting attendance.
