	I use the msu resources quite frequently in my courses and am quite
pleased with them.  I can understand the attraction of not using a
textbook, but I am not sure I can convince our introductory course
committee to go that route.  I am also aware of the textbook listing in
http://www.educog.com/publisher.html so I guess my question to the list
is has anyone actually used the loncapa questions associated with theses
texts, and what comments do they have about them.  Now that we have
introduced loncapa here, I would like it to have some influence on the
decision about the text.
	I am sorry if my comments about the resources in /res/wiley raised
concerns for other resources.  It looks like these have not been used
much and as result have not been debugged as well as the msu problems.
I also notice that Ohio University has their own cutnell area, and I
assume they have been used and thus tested better than the ones in the
official wiley area.
