Great Book,! March 28, 2011
If you are like never really learned your phonics and find yourself stumbling on how to pronounce medical terms the included software is a big bonus. I'm just a lay person but it makes discussing things with my doctor easier, a great price for a book in great condition. Reasonable delivery time too. I got it before school started.
