I am writing this review as a warning to future buyers that this is a workbook, not the actual text book. This page is very misleading, and it only mentions that it is a workbook in the technical edition description, and on the picture which looks exactly like the real text book except for the small words saying workbook in the corner. Maybe I'm too stupid to have not noticed those two tiny details, but if I'm not then I wanted to warn others so that they don't make the same mistake.
