Although there are many positives about this book, for me, the problems outweigh the virtues. I will not use this book for my students. As I see it, the numerous typesetting issues would confuse students. In the pdf, exponents are not distinguishable as exponents (e.g., p. 679 Example 4 question and answer). In the online html version, the base looks like it is a subscript (see Sec 5.1); in Example 2, the last "x" appears to be part of the exponent and should not be -- looks like x^(12x) rather than (x^12)x. The Word version took forever to open and then crashed my Word program.
