Overall a good curriculum but I have found 2 very bothersome glitches:

1: The practice problems window view shrinks every time you go to another app (i.e. Multitasking)

2. Every time I open a problem set one of the very first problem sets pops up for about 2 seconds.

Nice high school level text, but ...

Why even bother if there are no answers for the problems?

Can’t download

Can’t even download to either on my macBookPro (yosimite) or my iPad mini retina. Hours with apple support didn’t do much. Tried on three different connections (each of them very stable connections with 30mpbs speed).

I’m able to download other iBooks just fine. So I don’t know if it is this book!

Pathetic on Apple’s part I’d say, that a simple download has to be this painful.
