    Buy only if you need extra practice tests

    As the other two reviews said, this book is worthless for information. It lists the topics under each 'topic' that will be tested, but offers no refresher summary on any. Lab info was pretty useless as well. Only good thing were the practice tests at the end of the book. But as I didn't have time to use them, they didn't help me too much. lol.

    Don't waste your money!!!

    This book did not give any review, it just gave simple 'bullots' that did not help me at all. Also it only had ONE practice test! What other books had like seven. The only good thing is that it is the only book to review all 22 labs, but they didn't match the ones I did in class. It's great for practice questions but how'll will you answer them if can't review beforehand. I had to go to the library one week before the test to get other books cause this did not help me at all. I barely pass with a 3. I know if i had gotten the other book (Princeton Review) before, I would have gotten at least a 4.
