Inspection and Testing Theory pack - Dropbox download option only 30


If you have a dropbox account (or the dropbox app), you can take full advantage of near-instant online access, as well as being able to download and save the materials to your own device (pc/mac/tablet/pad/smartphone/android). A weblink and password will give you time-limited access to allow you to download and save the materials to your own pc/device from my Dropbox site. Once downloaded and saved the materials are yours to use forever from your own device. When the weblink and password expire you will no longer be able to access my Dropbox site.

If you don't have a dropbox account, you can still download the materials and access them and be able to save them to your own pc/mac (these only). To open saved materials use microsoft office package (word, excel, powerpoint) on your pc/mac. If you use a pad/tablet/smartphone I recommend you install the free dropbox app to be able to download and access/save the materials.


How does the download option work?

I use 'Dropbox' ( for all downloads, although if you have a pc/mac you do not need to have a dropbox account to be able to download and save them. For tablets/pads/phones the free dropbox app is required to open and save the resources. Follow the dropbox link to find out more.

When I have received your PayPal payment and you have separately emailed me with your current email address, I will immediately email you a time-limited dropbox weblink and password that takes you directly to your downloads. *You can then either view the resources as webpages via your web browser (for handouts, powerpoints, pdf's) on pc/mac or if you have dropbox installed - download and save the resources directly to your device in their original format (.doc, .ppt, .mpeg, .xls, .pdf). It is highly advisable that you have dropbox installed to be able to view/download/save the resources easily to your device before the weblink and password expire. You then have the materials forever because the links and passwords will expire after a certain time on dropbox. Always check my website countdown timer.

*Dropbox weblinks and passwords are changed every 14 days (so ensure you download and save your docs before expiry date shown on the Swindon Massive webpage).

Dropbox (and the dropbox app) is 'free' for pc/mac/pads/tablets/smartphones. Follow the Dropbox weblink above.

Users of ipads, tablets, net/notebooks, iphones, and android devices. Click the free link below to see if your device is compatible for my dropbox downloads. Check to see that you can open the link, input the password, view the filenames, open these documents (a handout and a powerpoint), and importantly - be able to save the documents to your device for viewing off-line. If your device can do all these - you are good to go for the download options. If not - you will need to download the free dropbox app and try again. I have tested the downloads on smartphones and tablets installed with the free dropbox app and free word, pdf, powerpoint installed and it works. To save the files using Dropbox app on smartphones opt to 'export' the opened docs to your device storage.
