Viewing Search Results

The Search Results page displays information about the current query, the total number of search results that were found, and the number of results on the current page.

If the results are not sufficient, you can select another product line from the Product Line drop-down list box and perform the search again. If the results contain information that's not relevant for you, you can filter the results by clicking a link in one of the boxes on the right side of the results page:

  • Refine Results

  • Filter by Job Role

  • Top Matching Books

In addition, each topic in the results includes links to show only results from that product or to hide results from that product if the entire product is not relevant.
