This descrioption never mentions that the Ebook version does not come with the CDs, which are absolutely essential. This is where you can listen to the abnormal heart and lung sounds which are the substance of the course. How about putting in large letters, "CD material DOES NOT come with the NookBook." How easy is that? Given the description, it is very easy to purchase the nook book thinking that you are also getting the supplemental material from the CDs.

Do NOT purchase this as a NOOK Book as it DOES NOT COME WITH THE CD's. This book is a great resource but is almost worthless without the CD's. Despite the fact that the CD's are mentioned 7 times in the overview of the book and numerous times in the editorial review do not be fooled - they do not come with the NOOK version of this book. Do not let anyone in customer service tell you otherwise. I ordered this book and was told by a Nook representative that the CD would be delivered under separate cover to my address and I waited 12 days and when I called to ask where the CD is they said that not only do the CD's not come with the book, but it was too late to refund my money. Trying to get in touch with a supervisor and if I still get nowhere, they recommended that I call the publisher...Now I own a useless resource book on my Nook. Very disappointing customer service and absolutely false advertising. If you want to buy it you need to buy the old fashioned real book which would hopefully come with the CD's. Good Luck
