I'm seeing them ok, maybe just a glitch in the matrix. smile.gif

I downloaded a few and it works great. But a few others did not work. The audio worked. The first few videos irked. The last few videos downloaded but the video would not play. Odd. I'll try it again and see what happens on my other PC.

How often is the book updated or revised?

Hello Aberk,

There isn't a fixed update schedule for the course, though there have been many updates since first release in 2006.

Thanks!

I will say - my expectation - after reading the thread title with the word "Book" and then fairly quickly reading the description it referred to things like "inside the book you will find 500 pages" and "it's a big book" I was thinking it was an actual book. You are right it does clearly say its an ebook. However it says this once buried in the middle of a paragraph of what is a pretty long description and many more times says "book".

I looked at this again after my post and I still find the overall presentation to be misleading.

So my suggestion would be to retitle the thread and any other listings to clearly say "ebook".

I don't know what the folks behind the ebook looked into but there are cheap overseas publishers and some folks (like me) would pay for a hard copy book. Of course we'd need to see the price but if I'm thinking about spending many thousands on a theater the book wouldn't phase me.

Nonetheless I have the material now on my iPad and I'm sure will get something out of it.
I'm a bit old fashion too, and find the use of the word book very misleading. Surprising given the tremendous value I get from this forum. I had to re-read the details of the offering too, to be sure. I have a tablet, but the last place I would prefer to take it is into a construction zone! My other home improvement books are parked on my workbench and well-dog eared. smile.gif If they fall onto the concrete slab below, no harm.

I printed it out and put it into a 3 ring binder at work for basically a few dollars. It was easy and the results were acceptable if you want a "manual" to refer to while in the constructions process.
