Review quote

"I am impressed with the content and selection of questions. While not particularly easy, the questions seem fair and appear to address many of the pertinent points in the chapters. The answers are understandable, and despite their brevity, complete, allowing readers to further research the information with timely references."-- "Doody Enterprises ", "July, 2008"show more
