Customer Reviews

textbook would be nice.

So when will Apple let us read our books on our Macs? Seriously this is getting old quick.

No Textbook

I really wanted to take this course but I am not able to read the textbook without an iPad (which I do not have). I'm disappointed that you can't read the book on an iPhone or at least on a Mac.

No ebook if using iPhone?

This course is not fully available if you're using an iPhone. There is no e-book available. Why? Without the book it's just audio and some video of authors randomly speaking, it's not a course. Please make it available.
