All the information is not very accurate. Like the definition for the word "Retainer" seem to be incomplete. It didn't mention the #1 thing a retainer is known for which is money. It said nothing about money directly concerning the definition of this particular word. I basically knew the meaning of this word and I am only a 2nd quarter paralegal student (so tell me something I don't know). Other than that I like the book. It's ok. A person who don't really know the basics can learn a lot (if they are patient enough to sift through all the extra long explanations in the chapters).Was this review helpful?
