For the Price, UNBEATABLE. Id pay twice the price to get twice the book-thats how much I really studied it-over and over.

Good development, esp because it lays out the whole book from simpleto difficult. Altho Ive been in the US a while, I forgot the basic names so this goes back with a fast review and short definitions and initials of the terms needed to follow.
