    Very good for just reading as you are able to enlarge the readable font. Also, highlighting and side notes are available.

    Not good at all for studying. If you need to print, it is not available. Also, if you are like me and need to quickly reference what you have highlighted, it is time-consuming to use the highlighting as a tool for study.
