NOTE: Prices of IDMA inside textbooks (i.e., textbooks produced by IDMA) are subject to change without notice. It is recommended that, where possible, telephone contact be made to inquire about shipping, handling, estimated delivery date, back orders, etc.

Please click HERE for the IDMA study material order form. Email or fax your order form to the IDMA office, attention Farouk Yassine, at FYassine@IDMA.org or (201) 748-1690.

For outside texts (i.e., study material not published by IDMA), we recommend visiting various online booksellers to comparison shop for the non-IDMA textbooks. Ordering information, generally from the publisher, is included in this document, but it is undeniable that online sellers often have lower prices. HOWEVER, it is essential that you order the correct edition of a book – always check the ISBN number.
