    This book is a waste of time. It presents concepts and gives explanations, but it does not provide practice problems or examples for the concepts. So, if you can read a paragraph on calculus and understand how to apply it without any examples, this book is for you. But if you are visual, and like examples and practice problems for concept then look for another book.

    This book does provide three sample tests and some helpful tips. But, that can also be found in another book.
