Since purchasing this book I have had nothing but pure satisfaction in using this book for the course. This book contains hundreds of useful information that today still does justice. In terms of how much detail this book goes into, I would not say that this is a long winded book but it does provide some excellent detailed explanations of each unit.
Also this book has some fantastic picture extracts from software that you will use when starting this course. Also the organising of the book inside is easy to read and find where you want to go. Also as a first from last years book some of the unit's offer web hyperlinks to extract information that can be downloaded to learn more about the unit in much more detail.
On a last personal note I would recommend this book to any ICT lover taking any IT course, because it not just offers the course but it offers other information which is important to any ICT students. I would recommend more then a five star on this book as it still helps me today with the amount of large of I have to do, it breaks the course work down with ease.
