Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Good for reveiwing studied material. Highly recomend Wiley Exam Review book & use the focus notes as review. I like the ease of having the study notes on my e-reader. My schedule is quite packed, so having the study notes at hand where ever I go is a huge plus. When I'm stuck waiting somewhere, I can easily get in some study time by opening the focus notes. However, I wish they included multiple choice questions. It would be a huge plus.
