    Almost Perfect

    The reading section gave me extremely useful tools. Most of the math sections' errors listed by the Stanford employee have been corrected in my edition. The only egregious error that remains is the one on page 83: the divisor is in the wrong place. As it reads now, the answer is 1. "Friday" is still listed as part of the answer explanation on page 126, but this minor typo doesn't affect the answer. I picked up my copy at the local B&N store. The cover is different, so it could be they made corrections in a newer edition. (No edition # is listed that I could find.) Good luck!

    Review from Stanford Employee Not Corrrect

    I just purchased the book, and went directly to all the 'typos' and 'wrong information', as mentioned in the April 1999 review - all the information mentioned by this reviewer is NOT correct, in other words, it's correct in the book. It's important to read carefully, which this book assists you with, especially if you tackle the book from page one through to the end (which the reviewer may not have done?). I'm only on page 33, and I've had great insights. I'll send in another review when I've passed the CBEST - which I expect to do the first time around, thanks to the help of this book.

    It's all you need.

    This book will tell you everything you need to know to pass the CBEST. From the thorough review of each subject (for the purposes of passing the test) to the test taking strategies you will learn, this book is the best. Don't consider Barron's.
