If not, are they're any ways that I can use to get this pdf onto my Kindle DX?
You can't transfer directly to Kindle DX, as it doesn't handle DRMed PDFs natively.
(I guess, it will be DRMed. You easily can check this on your PC, by trying to open the book in Adobe Reader.)
I'm pretty sure, Kindle DX won't even be recognised in ADE.
But there's a (not too complicated or time consuming) workaround.
You can strip both, PDF and ePUB, from DRM.
If it's PDF, that's it. Kindle DX can handle DRM-free PDFs.
If it's ePUB (probably not, just wanted to briefly describe), you can strip from DRM as well and then convert to PDF or AZW for Kindle.
DRM = Digital Rights Management = kind of copy protection
Searching for DRM, Kindle, Adobe should lead you into the right direction. Either in Google or in this forum.
