    Practice Exams - Poor Quality

    The book itself is fine and the writing style makes it easy to read.
    However, the practice exams are of poor quality. The exams repeat the same questions, give the answer multiple times for a question, and occasionally mark your answer wrong even if it was right. Once you complete an exam, you can get a report showing the correct answers to the questions you got wrong. However, the report does not show all the original choices so it's hard to determine what mistakes you made. In short, don't but this book if you are looking to practice the exam.
