I gave this book 5 stars for content. I has so many helpful phrases and I love that it has the catagories for Meets/Exceeds, Needs Improvement, and Unsatisfactory all under the same skill or attribute. But the Skills and attributes are so poorly organized and I am constantly flipping throughout the book trying to remember where I saw "attendance" or "time management" at. I had to put the post-it arrows on the pages. There's no index for subjects-something to think about putting into the future editions.
