    Very convenient Review by Danielle
    Great that I could begin studying while waiting for my book to arrive, but wish I could use it with any PDF reader instead of having to create an Adobe Id. (Posted on 2/15/2016)

    Thorough and useful Review by Kevin
    The chapters I have read so far are short and concise. There were some items that are at odds with the answers given in the practice exams guide and standard practice. (Posted on 3/8/2015)
