  1. I could be wrong, but it appears to be you can download only one free book from Kaplan. I based this on the fact that after I downloaded one book all the prices from free to not.

    • That’s weird. Which site did you download it from? What’s even stranger is this promotion initially included Kindle Books but then the Kindle disappeared from the list and then they never went free at Amazon, who usually matches everyone else’s free ebooks.

  2. I used the nook desktop application on my pc

    • I heard they were having some issues, like charging people when the price said free, so hopefully they’ll get that straightened out. There shouldn’t be any limit on number of downloads. I suggest Sony’s anyway because they are regular Adobe DRM’s that will work on many devices and the stupid Nook one’s probably have B&N’s DRM that will only work on Nook devices/software.

  3. Cool. I was initially going to try sony but I didn’t see a sony app for my device so I dont know if that is an option

  4. With the Sony Reader desktop app I have been able to down multiple Kaplan books for free. Thanks

  5. After downloading a few, I got a message that MBA Fundamentals International Business was “no longer available in your territory”

    So I went back into the Nook Desktop app and tried there and it downloaded. So may that prior issue was just temporary.
