2nd Class [Ed 2.0] Perfect Bound Binding

In 2016, PanGlobal initiated to move all products to Perfect Bound binding from our previous coil binding process. In 2017 we received notice that this first print run for Perfect Bound 2nd Class individual volumes (2A1, 2A2, 2A3, 2B1, 2B2, 2B3) [Ed 2.0] experienced some binding problems and inefficiencies. To remedy this, our printer adjusted the paper weight, binding adhesive and added 3 hole punch for new prints. As of our second print run these issues have been resolved.

In total, as of June 2019, there have been a total of 18 reports from customers concerning the Perfect Bound 2nd Class individual volumes (2A1, 2A2, 2A3, 2B1, 2B2, 2B3) [Ed 2.0] initial print run. All of these inquiries have been resolved by PanGlobal.

Going forward, PanGlobal will continue to address issues regarding this print run until August 31st, 2019 after which time customers who purchased and received the initial (non-hole punched) 2nd Class [Ed 2.0] Textbooks will be directed to our Support system for reference, and declined replacements for purchases made over 2 years ago.

To further support learners’ preparation for 2nd Class Part A2 certification, PanGlobal is pleased to offer an addendum chapter for Heat, Expansion of Solids and Heat Transfer.

A copy of this addendum will be shipped – at no additional cost – for orders placed between May 1st, 2018, and April 12th, 2019, which included the 2nd Class Part A2 textbook. The addendum will be shipped to the delivery address of the original order and should be delivered by May 3rd, 2019.

Purchases including the 2nd Class Part A2 volume received after April 12th, 2019, will have the addendum packaged with the A2 volume.
