We won't be able to use this due to the fact that our computers have been updated to Windows 10.

This is a great adult education book. I believe it would need more content to use in a 3 credit college level course.

This looks like a great book. It has great pictures to illustrate the features. We have not used it yet in the classroom setting but the staff at Labyrinth has gone above and beyond to help us! Thank you!
