Okay here's the deal, as I would assume most people who have purchased this book, I did so for a department promotional exam. That being the case, my use of the book entails a LOT of highlighting and underlining. So in regards to the information in the book, well it's there sure, but this book has no....whats the word...PERSONALITY. Yes technically the information is there, but it reads like Ben Stein on Ferris Bueller's Day Off. I've never before had a book sound friggen monotone in my head, yet this book accomplishes that friend's grandfather telling you, what feels like a 10 hour story, about his trip to the grocery store. Basically it is your average textbook that wouldn't keep the attention of a dead raccoon flopped on inside the book.Alright so apart from that ^^ side of it, HERE is where this book seriously pisses me off. As I said, for promotional exams, it's vital to underline (a bunch) and highlight (even more), and therein lies the issue, the construction of the book is WEAK. The pages are quite literally so thin that it tears under the slightest pressure of not just a ballpoint pen, but also a highlighter...YES highlighting this book tears the pages!! I have never in my life had to deal with a text book TEARING FROM A HIGHLIGHTER (I did attend college...I've hi-lighted a butt load of books!). This is EXTREEEEEMELY annoying when you're trying to study for promotion, stops you in your tracks. That might not be a problem if your department isn't very competitive with promotional exams, and just opening the book gives you a leg up. But for departments (like mine) which are extremely competitive, this is a huge problem...that I would call a study killer! It really is horrible and can only surmise that JB Learning & IAFC did this as a cost saving method...
