When the formulas are images they may appear to small to be read. You need to click and view the image in a separate scrren, and that is a blurred scan of the book, sometimes unreadable. All stanalone formulas are images suffering the same problem.
An expensive book great book, made virtually unreadable by a lazy electronic adaptation.
GR by Wald is absolutely excellent book for a grad student. It firmly establishes many elements and fundamentals of the theory with solid reasoning and mathematics.
Note though that a bit of knowledge of sets and manifolds may be good to have beforehand (only a bit). I would suggest the first few chapters of Bishop & Goldberg 'Tensor Analysis on Manifolds'. Excellent text. Or the first 60 or so pages of Hawking & Ellis 'The large scale structure of space-time".
As an additional note, Wald's text is somewhere in between Hawking & Ellis and Carrol's intro book regarding 'difficulty'. Probably leans a bit closer to Hawking & Ellis in that regard.
