Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Cengage is the "go-to" publisher for the CP exam prep materials. The self-assessment checklist is wonderful. A learner can determine roughly how much time and effort he/she should spend on the materials based upon his/her experience and education."

"The strengths of the textbook are: a. Excellent concise presentation of the substantive areas of the law and the skill sets that will be tested on the national examination. b. Practice timed exams for the student to use to verify their understanding of the material. And, the self-tests expose the student to the exam's format: True/False, Multiple Choice, Matching and Essay questions. c. Details on test preparation in general and specifics on taking the CP examination."

"It looks like a lifetime of work went into it and I applaud the author! I would certainly recommend it."
