1.0 out of 5 stars Don't get it!, August 10, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Physical Examination and Health Assessment - Pageburst E-Book on VitalSource (Retail Access Card), 6e (Printed Access Code)
The book is really good. My review is about the e-book!
When I purchased the e-book, I thought it was going to be just like another e-book I have, which is: exactly like the printed book.
BUYERS BEWARE! This is NOT!
The pages on the e-book don't correspond to the printed pages. Whenever a professor asked us to go to a specific page number, I had to look at somebody's printed page, check chapter number, pictures in it and browse through the e-book in search for the page the professor wanted us to read from. There is an option for "search page #", but it does NOT get you to the same page as the printed book. I ended up having to buy a paper one and have to carry this big and heavy book with me despite the fact that I had already spent a lot of money on a digital version that is... s#%t! You know what I mean!
If you need this book, BUY THE PAPER VERSION! SERIOUSLY!

Where did you buy the digital version? I can only seem to buy it through the school bookstore and not anywhere else.
