CGP Online Editions
CGP Online Editions are brilliant digital versions of our books that you can read on your computer or tablet — you’ll just need to be connected to the internet.
If you’ve got a CGP book that includes an Online Edition, you’ll find your 16-digit activation code on the first page. Just type this code into the box
below and click on the 'OK' button to get started!
Once you’ve entered your code in the box above, you’ll be asked to log in to your
CGP account (if you’re already logged in, you’ll skip this stage).
If you don’t have a CGP account yet, click on the ‘Sign Up Now’ button to create
one — it’s really quick!
Next, you’ll arrive at the My Online Products page.
Choose the Online Edition Library option...
...and you should find your brand new Online Edition waiting for you on the bookshelf.
View your Online Editions from “My Online Products”
You can get to the My Online Products page from
anywhere on the CGP Website — just follow the link at
the very top of the site.
You can also redeem more Online Editions on the
My Online Products page, so you’ll never need to come
back to this page again (but you can if you like).
Online Editions FAQs
Here are our most Frequently Asked Questions about Online Editions.
Can I view CGP Online Editions on a range of different devices? (E.g. my PC and my iPad)
Yes! Our Online Editions are compatible with most computers and tablets, so just log on to your CGP account with the device you want to use.
But you can only view Online Editions one device at a time.
Can I download Online Editions to view offline?
No, sorry! You’ll need to be connected to the internet to read your Online Editions.
I’m getting a message saying my version of Flash is out of date. How do I upgrade it?
You can install the latest version of Adobe Flash here — it’s free!
My books won’t open / I just get a wood effect or grey background when I open one!
Sorry to hear that. Here are a couple of possible solutions to try:
Turn off Private Browsing mode
If you’re viewing our website in Private browsing mode (also known as Incognito mode, Private window or inPrivate Browsing), our Online
Editions won’t work correctly.
Check your Popup Blocker
Sometimes, parts of our Online Editions can be blocked by a popup blocker, so you might need to adjust some settings. This can be a bit
technical, but you’ll find more details in your browser’s help menu, or by visiting wikihow.com.
If you’re still having technical problems, just get in touch and we’ll see what else we can do to help. Our contact details are at the bottom of this page.
I’ve ordered a book from CGP. Can I start using the Online Edition before the printed book arrives?
You can’t, we’re afraid. You’ll need to use the unique code that’s printed in the book to activate the Online Edition.
Can I use my code more than once?
Another no... each Online Edition code is a licence for one person, so it will expire once you’ve redeemed it.
Can I print my Online Edition?
Our Online Editions aren’t printable — but they usually come free with a printed book!
I have a different question!
If you haven’t found the answer you’re looking for, we’re always happy to help — you can contact us between the hours of 9am and 5pm (UK time), Monday to Friday.

A brief explanation of the problem
The device and internet browser you are using (details can be found here: whatsmybrowser.org)
If there’s an error showing on the screen, a screenshot would be great (but don’t worry if you’re not sure how to do this)
But please don’t include any sensitive details, such as your password, credit card number, shoe size etc.
