  • Many Errors

    The book is by all means useable, but it does contain a fair amount of typos.
  • Vocab doesn’t show up correctly

    When a vowel is long and stressed, it distorts the entire word. You would have to look up the word in another dictionary to find out how it is actually spelled.
  • Vocab is Unusable

    Do not get this book until they fix the vocab. It's unusable. Think to yourself, how useful is a language book with an unusable vocabulary section? The answer is not useful at all. Avoid it.
  • Vocabulary is unreadable

    When the publisher tried to put the physical copy on iBooks some signs were not available. So they tried to photoshop but failed miserably. DO NOT GET THIS IBOOK COPY, GET THE PHYSICAL ONE.

    Do not get. Downloaded copy has errors, messed up vocabulary, and is hard to decipher. Would not recommend.
