    Ok review, poorly written

    This book is a good review tool if you can get over the lists that have repeated entries, misspellings, and sudden changes in format (for example, there are lists of words followed by their definitions that suddenly swap places and the definition precedes the word). It was very obviously slapped together quickly in an effort for Mr. Mccaulay to make money. While he does list his references at the back of the book, many of the notes are directly plagarized out of the books he uses. He does not put things into his own words, nor does he use citations when he quotes an entire paragraph from another person's works.

    I bought this book along with the practice exams and studied them extensively. There were more than a few questions on the test that were not addressed by this book or any of my textbooks from school. Still, I did get some use out of it, but I found the bad formatting, numerous misspellings, and particularly the odd lists very distracting.

    For example, on page 63 there is a list for Incorrect set up considering ergonomics at a computer workstation.
    Computer in a corner on a platform
    Phone on shoulder
    Feet propped up on chair
    Computer in a corner on a platform

    This leaves the reader wondering, did he just accidentally put the part about the computer twice, or did he actually mean to put something else in place of one of these? For example, a computer that is above eye level?

    There are numerous lists that have this same issue. I don't know if the author and editor were simply the sloppiest I've ever seen, or if they were just trying to pad the book. Page 61 has TWO lists with duplicates in them.

    You may say I'm being incredibly picky here, but if one of these sloppy lists this is covering something that wasn't covered well in your class, how will you know if he simply made an error and repeated something or if you're actually missing info that he meant to put in there?
