2.0 out of 5 stars Very disappointing, 23 Aug 2013
I purchased this to help me prepare for my marine VHF exam later this year, expecting it to be a little more useful than it actually is. Sure, it accurately simulates a DSC radio, but the interaction and challenges (I use the word loosely) limit the usefulness.

Also, please be aware that if you're running a PC that's less than about 6 years old, the chances are that you too will have challenges with the graphics.

As an added bonus, the book is well well written and well formatted for the Kindle and I would strongly recommend it to all UK investors.
Security Automation Essentials: Streamlined Enterp&hellip by Greg Witte
Whilst I expected the content of this book to be a little dull (which it is) due to the nature of the topic, what I felt really let it down was its conversion to Kindle format. Given that this is a technical book, I would have expected some thought to have been given to making the examples readable. In this format, the book ha very little value.

If you need this book, get the paper version!
