Thumbs Up

  • cost is free
  • no registration or sign in required
  • each Ebook is 15 – 30 pages long and very thorough, it will take an hour or more to get through one
  • well organized – easy and logical to use without any instruction
  • easy to read text, very colorful, professional drawings and animations
  • all Ebooks are downloaded so you don’t need an Internet connection to view/show them
  • the varied format adds interest and includes: high definition photos, embedded videos, 3D animations, games, quizzes, and additional references

 

Thumbs Down

  • a few of the videos are not the high resolution modern type, they look great small but when enlarged full screen on an iPad you see a little grain

 

Overall Rating

  • 5  hearts  ♥♥♥♥♥
