Please Read Regarding Acrobat (PDF) File Downloads: :
If you simply click the links above, the file will start to download and open in the Adobe Acrobat Reader within your browser. The pages will start to appear, but it will be very slow to respond until the whole file is completely downloaded. Once it is completely downloaded you will need to save it to your computer in order to open and print it later.
The preferred method and a much better approach is to 'right-click' the link above and select 'Save Target As' or 'Save-As'. This will save the entire file to your computer, then you can double-click it from your local saved location.

Be careful to note exactly where the file is being saved on your computer.
