ebook lacks page number support / easy printing
By mrhhug - February 20, 2011
This book is used for a 2 credit mandatory course.
I bought this ebook for my kindle because the real book was ridiculously more overpriced. After i bought it; amazon released actual page numbers, and found this book to not be compatible... ehh ok no big deal i can still search.
I had no idea how many of the labs my instructor wanted us all to "rip" out of our book and fill out + turn in. I downloaded kindle for PC and found no easy way to print. was left to either make xerox copies (old school) from someone else's book or rip out the DRM and then save the book as html.
Before you but this in ebook make sure your instructor is not asking you to fill out every last chart (there are plenty).

Augmenting it with help from a... read more
