Format: Paperback
Like most of the books in this series these are good general base knowledge books. It covers the information in a simple to read format and simple enough language. Personally I thought this book was too surface level and too general and I used it very little, mainly just as a quick reference. If you really are starting from scratch and you need a book to spell out the basic principals to you then this is the book for you. If you like to think a little deeper and are aiming for a high mark you may need to look else where. The price, as texts go is however quite attractive and this is probably the reason why I bought it.
