    Awful wording- worst book I've used to study

    I bought 4 books to study for the PPR EC-6 exam. By far, this book is the worst. I found not only the writing hard to read and follow but the answer options were even more confusing. They would have answers that were almost so similar that even the explanation for why that choice was the answer did not make sense. I know the PPR is a hard test but it was no where like the practice test were like in this book. I found myself having re-read questions and answers over and over again just to understand what I was reading and to even understand the question... and answer options!

    Other things I did not like about this book was the answer key. The answer key in the book had the problem number and the answer not close to together, you have to drag your finger across the page to keep track of what the answer was. I found this to be a pain when I was trying to grade 90 questions at the same time. Why couldn't they just put the answer next to the problem number? I also thought the book gave no help compared to the other books I purchased on test tips. I am very disappointed I bought this book.

    On a good note- I did like the book had answer worksheets to use, as well as explanations on why it was the answer (even though they were wrote awful and every book has this). One thing this book had was it had a complete 90 question practice test just like the PPR. The other books either had just 60 or stopped at 80.
