Pearson invites Community Voices to post reviews and opinions about new and pre-release products to help their fellow learners make informed purchase decisions.
We are excited for you to get started, but before you do, please read through the following guidelines and requirements so you will know what to expect!
Pearson provides our Community Voices with complimentary review copies of new and pre-release products. We ask that the product reviews are completed within 45-60 days of product receipt, and that the review is posted on Amazon.com* and one other online location, with a link back to the Cisco Press product page.
*Exception: Amazon review submissions are not required for products that are not sellable on Amazon.com.
No. We welcome honest opinions about the product. We simply request a professional and thoughtful review.
The Cisco Press Reviewer Program is an invitation-only program. Potential candidates may request to join the program by submitting a complete application, and if selected, will be contacted with next steps for participation.
Community Voices are selected based on several criteria, but primarily on the candidate's background and experience with technology, and their interest to provide a helpful review of Cisco Press learning products.
We encourage our reviewers to let us know if there is a particular product that they are interested in reviewing. We try to match the product with the reviewer's interest, when possible. However, final products sent for review will be chosen by Cisco Press based upon the reviewer's area of expertise, interest, and the products scheduled for the program.
To be considered an active member of the Community Voices program, we ask that you complete all product reviews that you sign up for within 45-60 days of product receipt, and that you have reviewed a minimum of one product within a 24-month time period.
If you reside within the United States, we will provide you with your preferred format (print or digital). If you reside outside the United States, we will arrange for you to receive a digital bundle download (EPUB/PDF/MOBI) for books. Special arrangements for international shipping can be considered upon special request, but cannot be guaranteed.
No, Community Voices are not paid, but they do receive free products. On your application be sure to check the box yes if you want information about the Cisco Press Affiliate programto learn how you can earn commission for referring sales.
All reviewers must submit a completed Reviewer Program Application Form. Incomplete, inaccurate, or other forms of entry will not be considered.
Submitting a completed application form does not guarantee that you will be approved.
Final products sent for review will be chosen by Cisco Press based upon the reviewer's area of expertise and interest, and the products scheduled for the program. Reviews are expected to be submitted within 45 to 60 days from product receipt.
All reviewers are required to:
If you are accepted into the Reviewer program, you grant permission to Pearson to use your product review statements in any manner or media without previously notifying you, and to be considered for presentation in such mediums as publisher domain-hosted web pages and other associated printed and online promotional materials. You permit us to edit your comments for length/brevity/punctuation, so long as edits do not change the writer's intent or the spirit of your message.
As per Federal Trade Commission (FTC) regulation, we require that every product reviewer mention in their review that the product was received complimentary as part of the Cisco Press Reviewer Program.
