This book had many mistakes (even after checking the errata on the publisher's site). I found 6 errors after working through 60 problems. That seems like way too many in a book of this purpose. Inncorrect calculations were used as well as having obscure data/problems. It was more harmful in my opinion than not using it at all. I thought the book would be set up similarly to the actual exam (ie: 40 'morning' problems and 40 'afternoon' problems with the answers).
My time (and money) would have been much better spent looking back through my old college textbooks rather than to have purchased and used this book.
