Frequently Asked Questions

Can I get an inspection copy?
All of our Workbooks can be viewed online. Simply click the book cover image and it will load the contents of the book. You can zoom in or preview in fullscreen by clicking the icon in the toolbar. Selected Workbooks are also available as a hardcopy for inspection on special request, please email kay@abaresources.co.nz or phone on 07-854-9360.
Which price do I pay?
There are two pricing options: one for single copies and one for class set orders. If you purchase a single copy of the:
• Student Workbook, the RRP applies.
• Teacher’s Guide, the resource price applies.

For schools ordering class sets, the ‘school discounted price’ applies for the Student Workbook and the Teacher’s Guide.
How do I pay for my order?
If your school has an account with ABA, you will be invoiced for the books and payment will be due 20th of the month following. If you are ordering online, the ‘invoice’ option will display when finalising your order.

If you don’t have an account with ABA, payment can be made using Paypal, cheque or direct credit. Your order will be dispatched once payment has been received.
What is a class set?
School sizes fluctuate across the country so we base our class sets on the number of students studying a specific subject/achievement standard, e.g. if you are a small school, you may only have 10 students so this would be your class set. If you are a large school, you may have 150 students so this would be your class set.
Can I order a single copy?
Yes, for most titles you can. If you are after a copy of the Student Workbook, you will pay the RRP. If you are after a copy of the Teacher’s Guide, you will pay the resource price.
Do I order online using the order form or 'add to cart'?
If you know exactly what you want, you can head straight to our order form (located at the top right had corner of the home page). If you need to see our full range, select a category (science, physics, commerce, etc.) then peruse the workbooks available – you may even be able to view the book contents. If you wish to order, simply select the correct 'price option' for your purchase and 'add to cart'. You can then either keep browsing and adding items to the cart or 'checkout'.
Can I just purchase the Teacher’s Guide?
Yes, for most titles you are able to purchase the Teacher’s Guide but if you have not ordered class sets of the student workbook, you will pay the resource price.

Our Teacher Guides are sold near cost to complement the Student Workbooks. As you can appreciate, a lot of time and effort has gone in by the author and publisher so this is the reason the resource price is charged.
How long will it take to get my order?
If you are in the North Island, you should receive your order within 1-3 days. If you are in the South Island, you should receive your order within 1-4 days. If you have not received your order within this timeframe, please contact us so we can track and trace your order (unless the item was sent by post).
Why is there more than one price option per workbook?
For the majority of our Workbooks, there are four price options but this is dependent on how you will be using the Workbook(s), e.g. ordering class sets or purchasing a single copy. The four options that will appear on the price drop menu are:

STUDENT WORKBOOK – Please select this option if you are an individual wanting to buy a single copy or a School not purchasing a full class set.

STUDENT WORKBOOK CLASS SET – Please select this option if you are a School purchasing a full class set. A 'class set' is the number of students in your class.

TEACHER GUIDE CLASS SET – Please select this option if you are a School and are also purchasing a full class set of the Student Workbooks.

TEACHER GUIDE RESOURCE – Please select this option if you are an individual wanting to buy a single copy or a School and not also purchasing a full class set of the Student Workbooks.

PLEASE NOTE: When purchasing the 'Student Workbook' or 'Student Workbook Class Set', and the 'Teacher Guide Class Set' or Teacher Guide Resource', you will receive the same book, i.e. the Teacher Guide Class Set and the Teacher Guide Resource are the same book, just with a discount for bulk orders.

If these four options do not appear for a workbook you have selected, this is because the answers are in the back of the book or a Teacher's Guide is not available.
