News and FAQs: (updated 4 May 2011)

Version 3.41 has the same learning content as 2.41 but has been adapted to run under the latest version of ToolBook (10.5) to make it compatible with the most recent Microsoft operating systems, including 64-bit Windows 7. Licensed institutional users of versions 2.40 or 2.41 are welcome to e-mail me for upgrade details. While version 3.41 remains on sale I will supply it free, on request, to any personal user who placed an on-line order after July 2010 and received version 2.41.
