I bought this as a last resort when my textbook was on backorder, and I don't recommend this e-book at all. Whole chapters and pages are missing. I needed to read chapter 33 for an assignment, but it's gone. The whole book looks awful; it looks like it was a word document that was just copied and pasted and the formatting got messed up in the process. Save your money and don't get this e-book
