Updated 11/09/2016: I wrote the original post too soon. I originally thought I had the correct textbook from my previous class and the day of the start of the class, I realized that I did not have the correct book, literally 1 Exam number different (220-801 instead of 220-802), I admit it was my fault that I didn't do this sooner, but I had a long of things going on and it was the last thing I was worried about. So, I thought that the perfect solution would be the Kindle version, which costs a little more but I could use it on the go. As I started my reading assignments, I noticed starting with chapter 8, image 8.3 and throughout the entire rest of the book, the images did not show up in both my Galaxy Tab 4 and my iPhone 6, making it really difficult to do my assignments. I contacted Amazon and hopefully they will have a solution, as it does show right now that the Kindle version is under review. Because the issue was not resolved within 24-48 hours as I was told, I had to return...
I bought this for a college class on computer science and thought I was going to spent hours reading boring technical stuff. Don't get me wrong; it is ALL technical, but the author managed to make it interesting and entertaining.
