    I bought this book because I wanted to do a lot of studying without internet or a computer. (ex: on a plane). It served that purpose, but was annoying to use. I write a cert book myself and it is hard to write an errata free book. However, the problems I have go beyond errata. Read this review and see if they are things that bother you.

    There were a bunch of errata which I didn't log. This is to give you a feel for the quality type issues. Also, the book wasn't written by anyone in particular. It was assembled from different places which probably explains some of this.

    There are no chapters or divisions. Just 191 questions in a row.
    The answers/explanations are not in an appendix or on another page. They are right below the question. This makes it take effort to use the book since you need paper to cover the answers every time you go on to the next question.
    Most of the questions had one answer. There was at least one with multiple answers but no indication of that fact. This was surprising.

    I did like that there was both an explanation and web reference for each question.

    The book was only $10. It was less valuable than the companion book though.

    I give this book 2 out of 10 horseshoes.
    Now I am super curious what sports would be like if we allowed drugs and tiny ads.
