This book is good, but would be better with interactive links. Meaning, I would like to be at the content page and be able to click chapter 5 and it take me directly to the beginning of chapter 5, instead of having to swipe right or use the scroll bar at the bottom. Also, the flashcard feature doesn't work..at all. I am unable to copy and paste the information to the flashcards nor can I just import them from the textbook.

I have used digital textbooks through iBooks and everything worked perfectly, so I know that these things can happen.

I have never used a textbook through Amazon, but if this is common practice, I won't purchase them here again.

I got this because I needed it for a CC class. Unlike other books I've purchased, I cannot make the lettering bigger without the margins going out of range. Therefore the lettering is very difficult to read.
