    Illogically and Poorly Organized.

    Incredibly out of order, there was at least one instance where a chapter review question asked about something that wasn't even mentioned until several chapters later. I expected something much better for the high price. The cd-rom is also completely useless, makes a nice drink coaster I guess.
