What are PDF Files?
Portable Document Format (PDF) files allow you to view and print maps, tables, sample forms, and worksheets from JobMonkey with much better resolution than is possible using graphics such as GIFs and JPEGs. This value -added feature of our Web site gives you yet another option for gathering useful, free information.
PDF files can be viewed and printed from Acrobat Reader, a free application available from Adobe. This application launches automatically from within your Web browser (Internet Explorer, Netscape Navigator, etc.) whenever you click on a link to a PDF file.
To download this free application, follow the instructions below:
- Go to the Acrobat Reader download page here.
- Enter the requested information, then click on Download. Remember where you save the file, because you will need to find it later. If you have trouble downloading or installing the application, go to the Adobe Acrobat Reader product information page.
Note: The application file is large, so it's best to download over a broadband, high-speed connection. The Acrobat Reader application will allow you to view and print sample forms, worksheets, and extremely helpful maps from the JobMonkey site. Acrobat Reader can also help you to print tax forms and view other online publications all over the Internet.

- Come back to JobMonkey and try clicking on a PDF file link. Acrobat Reader should launch from within your browser, and you should be able to view the map, form, or worksheet.
