I would NOT recommend getting a nookstudy ebook. I was not able to access the book when I needed it. I had purchased the book and was unable to download it. Barnes and Noble kept me on hold for 39 minutes and then took my number to assist me and never called me back. When you are in school and have deadlines you cannot wait around for BN to figure out their computer errors. I would recomment buying/renting the book from your bookstore, unless you want to put yourself in a bad situation by using a faulty ebook product like nookstudy.Was this review helpful?
