    I didn't like that this was a read only format. The pages were copied from a book, and it could have been laid out much better. (maybe a description posted In the advertisement of the class would be helpful). good info, but the education piece was lacking.

    I wish the text wasn't in PDF. I had to print it out to read it since the text was small and I got a headache trying to read it online and follow the columns. Convert it to paragraphs in one column instead of multiple columns.
