2019 Revision Notes:

"It was found that although the free textbook had been well received by students, there were integral elements found in traditional textbooks that were absent from the free offering and were necessary to support the instruction of the course.

Accordingly, supporting components such as chapter overview mini-lectures, terminology checklists, homework test questions, and PowerPoint presentations were developed."
