    Great value for students!

    In my mind, this is a MUCH better value than Creative Cloud for students that need to work with PDFs professionally (Engineering, Business, Literature, etc). The creative cloud subscription requires a monthly payment, and while its cheaper than full retail, it comes out every single month. Over the years, you will be spending several times more than the cost of this software stand-alone, and realistically few people actually use all the features of Creative Cloud. Identify your use case - if you just mostly work with documents, this is all you need. While its more up-front, you will be further along with just getting this software after only a few months.

    At First Hesitant But Now Very Pleased

    I was at first hesitant after I purchased this item and actually tried to return it prior to opening it. I just was not sure if this was a have to have item or a good to have item, however I am a professor and so I did feel that the student/teacher price point was a very good one. I did try to return it but then found out that after you purchase a software product and it is scanned, then you may not return it. So...I downloaded the software with my purchased Best Buy software product code and now I can see that this was needed..and that it has made my work life much easier due to all of the capabilities of Adobe. In addition, this was the best price I was able to find anywhere!

    This is the best for editing PDF files.

    I purchased this version for the students at my school. Adobe has not adopted the typical annual fee, such as those used by Microsoft for its Office 365 platform. Those option are good for some people, but if you plan on using the software over the course of a few school years. It cost much more money. I love this version because it wat not as expensive as Adobe Pro, but has almost all of the same features for a one time cost that is about half the money. They only downside is you must be in education to purchase it. It's great for teachers.

    Has all the features I needed to edit files. I recommend checking out Adobe's website to ensure that this version has all the features that you're looking for or need. Pretty easy to install and set up. You will need to verify your teacher or student info/enrollment then the code will be sent to you via your institution's email address. I suggest printing a copy of the code out and/or email it to yourself or both just in case you'll need to install and reinstall.

    Student/Teacher Price Reasonable for This Software

    I was familiar with the product from office use in a previous profession. I liked functionality but thought the price expensive for personal use. Discovery of special student/teacher pricing rendered the price much more reasonable. I intend to convert all documents for my graduation portfolio to PDFs prior to submission. I also envision using other functionalities for personal projects. Many functionalities are available.

    Full Copy at Education Price

    Currently in Grad school, decided to pick up a copy of Acrobat Pro while I am still a student. This is the full blown copy at education price. All you have to do is follow the instructions to request a serial number. They will verify you and send the key to you within minutes if you have a .edu email address. Otherwise, you have to submit additional verification (scan ID card, prove attendance, etc) and wait for the key.

    Get the subscription through Adobe

    If you want to use the Adobe cloud storage and receive updates then you are better off going with the subscription through Adobe directly. It is $14.99 per month but that includes the software, cloud storage and updates. There is no discount for purchasing the software separately so if you need the cloud storage don't bother purchasing this software.

    I teach part time at a local college and I really appreciate the ability to purchase this product for a student/teacher discount. I use Acrobat Pro at my full time job and have always been happy with its performance and have come to depend on it a great deal. Like previously stated, great product now at a good price. This will be beneficial to both teachers and students!

    The Acrobat Pro 2017: Student And Teacher Edition for Windows is powerful software at a very affordable price. It's easy to install and performs as what I would imagine, the full blown, more expensive version would perform. I have recommended it to my fellow faculty members and many have purchased it.

    I've always liked Adobe software. I enjoy having the stand alone version rather than having to have a subscription that I have to keep paying for to use. This is a one time payment and done. I've been able to install on all my computers without having licensing issues.

    Adobe Acrobat Still the Best

    After trying other PDF software, I went back to Adobe. The integration with Windows is far better than the others I have tried. VERY expensive, however, unless you are eligible for the academic version.

    Adobe make some good products, this one wasn't bad, I'm glad I got the student teacher edition which was less expensive. And I paid full price I probably would not have been as happy with the product.

    Use this for editing and filling out pdf documents. Very easy to use. I tried free online editors, but ended up getting this as I didn't trust the cloud provided by free editors.

    Well, this is a fair price for Adobe product. You cannot get it anywhere (maybe eBay) and usually, you can only pay for using Adobe products by monthly or a year license through Adobe website.

    Though many of its comprehensive features are available in other less expensive PDF editors, Acrobat remains the industry standard and that alone is reason to consider it.
