    • Glitches

      By Juantttttyt
      Overall a good curriculum but I have found 2 very bothersome glitches: 1: The practice problems window view shrinks every time you go to another app (i.e. Multitasking) 2. Every time I open a problem set one of the very first problem sets pops up for about 2 seconds.
    • Can’t download

      By dvrraju
      Can’t even download to either on my macBookPro (yosimite) or my iPad mini retina. Hours with apple support didn’t do much. Tried on three different connections (each of them very stable connections with 30mpbs speed). I’m able to download other iBooks just fine. So I don’t know if it is this book! Pathetic on Apple’s part I’d say, that a simple download has to be this painful.

    • Nice high school level text, but ...

      By Deepblueguitar
      Why even bother if there are no answers for the problems?
