Starting a summer internship I needed a little extra boost on how to conduct more efficient Westlaw searches. So, I thought this book sounded perfect. Its not. Its all of 75 pages of the most BASIC information (25 pages are dedicated to Westmate - I don't know anyone who uses that). I should've paid closer attention to the fact that it was written in 2000 since that was 5 years ago and the program is different now! I wasted $50+ on this thing and this definately will not help at my job. Boo. What a waste of money.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
