    this ebook says it is free and allows you to download it but when you go to read it on your nook, it asks for your creditcard name and #.

    Fraud

    I believe the term is FRAUD when something is advertised as free, without restrictions, and then your credit card is getting charged. Shame on BN!!!

    Not impressed

    Actually, I found this guidebook hard to navigate through. I couldn't find certain measurements that I needed explained. It wasn't very reader friendly. Most of it looked jumbled together and not very well organized. It was too complicated to find what I needed, so I gave up and resorted back to using the regular study guides that I use for school. The oldest are sometimes best they say.

    I loaded this several months ago and have not had much need to reference it but, when I do, it works fine. It is not as sophistifcated and complete as the venerable Rubber Publishing reference for scientific formulas and measurements but does very well for daily use.
    The navigation is fine although a little different than other ebooks. The use of the TOC and A-Z index are efficient and effective. It works both on tthe Nook PC app and the Nook Simple Touch
    I am at a complete loss why there are so many negative reviews. There must have been a bad copy at one point being posted.
