1.0 out of 5 stars Book content is good but it is in black and white 9 Mar 2014
By zaphod42 - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The book content is good.

But, beware! This book is not in printed in color! The online preview suggests the book is printed in color. But it is not. The paper version is printed in gray scale. Of particular concern are the diagrams for four projects. The text does not even mention the actual color of the parts. Also, the screenshots of the EV3 brick LCD are almost illegible.

I'm giving the book one star because the Amazon description does not mention that the book is not in color. I find this deceptive.

3.0 out of 5 stars The Kindle edition is in color 2 April 2014

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I haven't started reading the book yet, but wanted to let everyone know that the Kindle edition is in color. Perhaps it doesn't appear in color on a Black and White Kindle, but it's in color on my computer and iPad Kindle apps.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good Book but only BLACK AND WHITE, not color as shown on webpage 31 Mar 2014
By Albert S. Berman - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I purchased this book for my grandson who is ill. When I looked at the sample pages on the website the illustrations were shown in full color. However, when my grandson started reading the book, it was all in black and white.

I rated it 3-stars because the information is good and well presented.

I am very disappointed in Amazon that they would not only mislead potential buyers on what they are going to get, but they also ignored a review from almost a month ago pointing out this misleading webpage.

1.0 out of 5 stars All pictures in the book is Black Whilte 28 Mar 2014
By Loh Chee Wah - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The book is informative. However, all the illustrations and pictures in the book are black and while. Honestly most picture is quite difficult to see, for example page 30, Figures 2-1. This make the whole book look like those pirated copy. And don't be fooled by the "Click and to LOOK inside", which is with color picture and illustration. Action copy is not.
5.0 out of 5 stars Not sure where to begin with EV3? Then this book is a neccessity, 30 Mar 2014

Learnig how to program the new EV3 Brick can be daunting if you are not familiar with its operation. This book starts at the basics and takes you through some moderate to complex ideas. Great format for incorporating into any classes if you teach robotics.
