    Wonderful review guide, study aid, and refresher course.

    This should prepare you to pass the boards if you have studied HARD in class and do ALL your reading...but this guide is just plain excellent. Many guides cover the same material, but the source of information is a very reputable massage therapist and the way it has been put together is awesome. The book is like a refresher massage course. Good Job!
