** Don’t spend your money on NEC 2017 handbook ebook**

They should of stuck to the pdf version at least, I just wasted $200. Hard to navigate, can’t use index properly, don’t know what article your on, only allows one view, can’t search, thought there would be more explanations, can’t believe they thought this was acceptable, who’s in charge of this project?, I’m going to see if I can return it but I read somewhere ebooks are none refundable.. figures why, they’d get a lot of returns. It’s just a poor product and valued for price sold, expected higher value from NEC.

Terrible GUI

If you like the following attributes: takes too long to search; acts likes it has frozen; click on search button many times to get it to respond; when a searched page comes up you may not see what you looked for then you have found an app that likes to do all of the above.

As someone suggested — get the PDF version.



Almost too slow to use. It ends up being used for emergencies only.
