I used this book for a state civil service exam. I found some of the strategy explanations confusing. There were not enough reading comprehension exercises.

Found some of the math type questions on the actual exam I took to not be mentioned in book. The title of the test's math section was business math. The book made me feel as if I was in Beginning Algebra or Geometry.
