Though indicated on the product page , it is not instantly obvious that this only works on Fire devices and the reading app on IOS , Android and Windows devices. Kindle readers and Cloud reader are not supported.
The book is definitely good and readable though.
Second, and much worse, the book does not include answers to half of the practice problems. What good is it to have questions that we don't know the answer for?
Third, other features are turned off as well—I can't read this on Kindle Online Reader, only my phone.
This is a terrible study guide and it just goes to show how distorted the academy has gotten. It's not about learning any more, it's about making money. And these scammers got $60 of my money as a result.
As I said, though, the book itself is very good. It explains concepts well and gives examples, even giving (sometimes a bit confusing) instructions on how to calculate and graph things in Excel. It sometimes doesn't quite explain why things are important, but that's okay.
