    Everything you need to know...Ch. 7, 11 and 13 mostly

    Extremely helpful. My professor was NOT the best teacher, and I had to teach everything myself before the exam. This book helped me to do that. Grades did no come back yet but I felt much better after reading it. I read the book from cover to cover two weeks before the exam, wishing that I had purchased it during the semester and read it instead of going to class. Get started on this early!!
