Personalized Self-Assessment Experience

The new Quizzing tool allows you to take and/or build custom quizzes organized by subject and topic. Results are automatically saved so you can easily analyze areas of strength and weakness.

You can access the quizzing tool by navigating to the self-assessment page of any collection you have access to:

Once there, you will see all the subjects and topics for that particular area of study. You can select one topic you'd like to focus on, or select multiple topics to review at one time.

You'll be given multiple options to further personalize your quizzing experience by selecting the number of questions you'd like to review, how much time you will be allotted to answer each question, what type of questions you'd like to focus on, and whether or not you'd like the option to check your answers immediately:

After you've completed each quiz, a digest will automatically populate with your results:

You'll also be able to review how you've done in this particular subject area if you've attempted the quiz multiple times:

Additionally, progress bars track what topics you've studied and how well you've done on the self-assessment landing page for a quick and visual representation of your progress:

Print to PDF Instructions

With a personal account, you can save LWW Health Library content as PDF documents if you’d like to reference materials off-line and do not wish to print.

First, go to the chapter of a specific text you’d like to save to PDF. Under the chapter heading you’ll see the following options; select PRINT:


A window will automatically pop up displaying options for which printer you'd like to send the document to. Select the drop down menu and chose ADOBE PDF.


A window will pop up prompting you to select where you'd like to save the document; select the location of your preference.


The PDF document will almost always automatically pop up once a version is saved to your computer. If not, locate the document where you saved it and enjoy access to the chapter offline.

Please note! A personalized watermark-the name you used when registering your personal account-will appear at the bottom of each page:
