I hesitate to criticize this "book" (really a pamphlet) because I imagine that it was written by a high school student. However, even HS students should proofread and edit their work. This is short and concise, yet chock full of typos and grammatical errors. It's poorly written in general, and for $13, I expected a lot more.
Quick, concise and easy to read for those who want to update on areas of knowledge they never had before!
