Student Guide
Printed Copy

Print versions of this course are available at cost from a Print On Demand company called LULU. The layout, like all POD books is amateurish (1 hour spent in prep) but it is cheaper than printing your own. I have not ordered my own copy so I have no idea how good or bad the hard copy looks. Order at your own risk.
