I won't know the full impact of just how good the book is until we get to the end of semester. If I get an A, it must be because I'm truely gifted in advanced math, anything less and it has to be a deficiency in the way the material was presented. But seriously. The real problem with B&N is that 2 day shipping might mean 5 or 6 day shipping. Since the Prof could care less about B&N's little shipping problem this creates a serious problem for a college level math class. I pointed this out B&N and they basically said "we're sorry, we don't control shipping". This is fairly laughable because they are the ones that contracted the carrier and arranged to have the book delivered. On first pass it looks like the calc book will be fine but B&N service blows.
