    BIG DISAPPOINTMENT

    I bought this book in hopes of getting a head start on learning this language. The CD included in the book is out of date. You have to do lots of preparation on your computer before you can get it to work. This includes visiting their website and printing out instructions to fix your computer. They didn't tell you this in the book. I wasted $40 on this book.
