Would be Ok except...
Many of the answers in the study section are wrong! I only read through chapter 1, but found at least 3 errors in the so-called 'correct' answers. Please fix this! -Professor of Biology
The latest update to the iBook is amazing! I have the print and PDF version of this textbook, but the new design and interactive features of this iBook makes it the best format for me. The fact that OpenStax can update this textbook to fix corrections is a huge plus as well. For the price of a cup of latte, this textbook is a steal.
Getting the iBooks version over the PDF is worth it for the nice layout and interactive abilities. Really incredible for an open source book, if only more people could follow the example.
It's only $5, or about the same price as a coffee.
