The NOOK Study program is terrible. It worked for 2 weeks and now I am unable to access my book for class. Barnes and Noble is no help at all. I basically wasted $40 to rent this and I will now have to buy the book, but it will not be from B&n. I will be getting my books through Amazon from now on!
