Why we use PDF documents

PDF documents are typically smaller in size than Microsoft Office documents and are much more accessible as they can be opened on any PC that has the free Adobe reader installed.

How can I open PDF documents?

A PDF reader can be downloaded free from the Adobe website (full instructions for downloading the reader are provided on the Adobe website).
