This book does not cover all areas that other books cover and you may find that therefore certain areas of your course are not covered in the book. I would recommend that you find another textbook, eg A Burrows, A Casebook on Contract (HART), and if you want, buy this as a second opinion. I own the Burrows book and personally find it much more informative and thorough. The structure of the Koffman and Macdonald book is also a little illogical in areas. Furthermore, the Burrows book gives large extracts of speeches from important cases, which the K&M book does always do.
In conclusion, if you want a supplementary book on basic contract, this is perfectly serviceable. If you want a single textbook to get you through your first year, I would recommend another book. Certainly contact you uni department before purchasing as they will generally recommend good books.
Finally, if you do want to buy this book, make sure you are getting the latest version. The 7th edn (this one) was published in 2010 and may well be out of date. Always check to see if there is a newer edition.
This book is overpriced and it is hoped that the next edition is much better. Alternatively, why not try Principles of Contract Law 4th Edition by Richard Stone published by Cavendish.
