I absolutely love the high quality graphics and how interactive the book is. The content is also pretty well summarized. Thank you very much
I love OpenStax books. They’ve saved me so much money on textbooks it’s ridiculous. You can download free PDF copies of the textbooks from their website. I usually purchase the Apple Books editions for the enhanced content, and to support their efforts. It’s definitely worth the $6-$7. Unfortunately, not all of my professors use OpenStax books but a lot of them are transitioning!
