  4. I clicked on a couple of the documents you listed — they appear to be just the scan information and not the books themselves.  They are MS Word docs.  I downloaded a couple of the books you did and they are in PDF format.    The website is a treasure trove.  After viewing some of the various other systems out there, I'm quite glad I was able to take Gregg.  🙂
