I like a quick read. And a quick read that is packed full of usefull information is a dream! Having a fine arts degree sometimes leaves me feeling like I missed some subjects in school. Especially when talking to some of my egg head friends. This book gives me a chance to keep up with those friends. Enjoy more knowledge! Greg
Too bad the other reviewers didn't pay attention to the book. The one guy spelled useful with two 'L''s. If you've got any standardized tests coming up, this book is great as a supplement to your regular studying. It is lighter and less serious, but just as informative as any exam prep guide I've used.
Interesting and entertaining read. Great gift idea for the highschool grad too!
The publisher did a great job of this book with eye appealing visuals and graphics on high quality paper. However the author did such a swift job, it was difficult to enjoy. I find the subject recaps were not articulate, and a clear, concise, coherent explanation could have been given in the same amount of book length that it was written. The mismatched title and subtitle ¿Stuff You Should Have Learned At School¿ and ¿¿Get All The Benefits of an Expensive Education In One Easy Book¿, respectively, is ironic. The information is about at the high school level and under. I am sure parents would not spend an expensive education on children if ¿having a great time and didn¿t learn anything or the kind of pupil that threw your teacher out the window¿-as the author explains for the book purpose. This is not expensive education information, but the publishing quality deemed expensive. I give this book a three star rating just for trying-in case author was given only a day to write it.
