I am a seasoned tech veteran (retired) entirely a hobbyist/latterday student, but I am a complete newbie at this subject and this product.
To expect someone to learn where everything is by starting at page 1 and going through it in its entirety is unrealistic. I cannot find anything. Even the entries that ARE in the index are nothing more than direct copies of TOC entries. It was a complete waste of money and I'd like to return it, in exchange for a book where the publisher gave some thought to the complexity of the subject and spent a few extra bucks having a proper index created.
There are even tools in Microsoft Word that I have successfully used, to let you, the author, create the index as you write the book. It does take extra effort but if you don't make that effort your book is USELESS.
As if to add insult to injury, buying the book at retail on the open market (e.g. from Amazon) does not qualify you for the downloadable material -- that is only for "Faculty and Students". This seems very strange to me, more like a going-out-of-business strategy. Downloadable material as value-added collateral for a book has an incremental cost close to zero. Note to the publisher: Why should I EVER buy another publication of yours?
