    It worked... I PASSED!!! Review by Amazon Customer
    Overall
    Needs to be updated to the new Fall 2017 version of the PRAC exam, but otherwise very very helpful! I used solely this textbook, studied about 30 min-1 hour per weekday, usually more on the weekends, for 3 months and passed all three exams (Fall 2017) on my first attempt. I think I ended up reading through the book about 3 times through the course of studying. The book has the material broken down by what will be on each exam so I first read through the book completely and then focused on what I needed to study for each exam. I spaced my exams out 1 week in between each so I had time to study for each exam separately. There are a lot of books and study materials for the exams that are really expensive, on top of how expensive the actual exams are. I opted to use just this book and was nervous that it wouldn't be enough... but it turned out it was! I read some other reviews of this book stating that the material gets repeated in different chapters. I noticed that slightly, but it seemed to be in different context and I think it's helpful for studying to have the same things explained in different ways. (Posted on 2/8/2018)
