    Full of errors in the first 24 pages

    I bought this for my son and had him try the 30-problem mini-test at the beginning of the book. When we reviewed his answers and checked them against the answer key, I was astonished to find at least four obvious errors in the key itself. Three of the errors were in the math section. I took the book to a community college math instructor who confirmed that the key was wrong in all three cases. In one problem, the word "constant" is used where it appears that they meant "consonant".

    I had great difficulty reporting these errors to Sparknotes because their website also has a number of problems. I tried to go to the error reporting page of their website... the one listed in the book... guess what? 404 page not found. Other error reporting links were also unusuable because of missing content in drop-down lists of required fields.

    We'll be shopping for a better book.
