About Saving and Printing PDF's
PDF stands for Portable Document Format. The advantage of using PDF's is that a PDF will look the same on any computer in any country whereas other types of files like Microsoft Word documents may look very different on different computers.

Adobe's Acrobat Reader is required to view PDF file and it is free and can be downloaded here:
Get Adobe Reader

We recommend that you use the "Save and Print PDF" option for printing your worksheet. By using this option it will save a hard copy on your computer which you will be able to use over and over again. Plus, the worksheet will be formatted properly.
