I am two months into course and book is very clear and well written. I'm not especially rough on books, but I did drop this book once. It is already coming apart. The cover is detached from the spine and front. Cost alot should not fall apart.

you CANNOT view it on your nook. you can only view it on your PC or MAC. note to self! I'm sure it will be fine on the computer but I was hoping that it would work on the Nook and up to current, there is no compatibility.
