Recommended Method:

Retrieve PDF reading from Studywiz, save on a local drive AND Dropbox, Google Docs, or another similar could service. Save in at least two locations.

Be prepared to share with Mr. T at request.

It is recommend that students share their work in as many locations as possible. It is always better to be safe than sorry.
