Just a quick note to save you all a buck or too this is a great book but buy the hard copy, you will pay anywhere from 10 to 25 dollars less and you will get a CD with the practice exams and a supplement e-book.... which is much better then paying the 75 dollars for just the E book no practice exams, no supplements, and trying to study using just the book alone. Other then that this book really compensates for all learning levels and the language is really easy to understand.
