Nook Study

I'm a student looking to buy my textbooks for this semester, and one of the ones I need is cheapest from the Barnes and Nobles nook study thing. I don't know much about it, generally being a kindle person, so I thought mobileread would be the place to start asking questions. So, here goes:

1) Is this some analog to amazon's print replica books, or is it web-based? (ie. is it a file I can just keep on my laptop, or am I going to have to have a constant internet connection to use it? I used a browser-based cafe-scribe book once, and it was not a good experience.)

2) Is it user friendly? If I get a great price for something, but then go nuts trying to get the wretched thing to work properly, I'm not sure that's the best exchange.

Thanks!

I know nothing about Nook Study, but the FAQ says...

Do I need to be connected to the Internet to read my eTextbook?
No. Once you've downloaded your eTextbook it is accessible to you anytime from NOOK Study. However, you will need to be online to take advantage of the Lookup features or when syncing your books.

I appears that most text books have a 7-day trial, so maybe the one you need does? No better way to judge how it works than to give it a try.

eh, not that I can see. But then, I'm not used to B&N's website; I'm probably just not looking in the right place. I'll see if I can find it. Thanks.
