How Cool is That?

One of the features that makes iBooks a great platform is the ability to update material. When you purchase a study guide from us, we update the material on a regular basis as needed, which ends up being more or less monthly. Updates are free to you as a customer during the year of purchase, so the earlier in the calendar year you purchase, the more time you will have with a completely updated book throughout the calendar year. 2017 Books purchased will be updated free through December 31, 2017.

You will see these updates slightly differently, depending the device on which you are viewing the book.

What happens to highlights and notes?

Any highlights, notes, or marks you make will be automatically updated on all devices as long as the devices are online when you open the book. Updates on the pages that have been changed may not be carried over into the newly updated book, but all other notes will transfer.
