Poor editing in the book is very distracting. The practice exam included in the book and in the online exams contain numerous false statements. Use them at your own risk. I am currently seeking a better way to prepare for the exam. This book leaves me feeling ill-prepared.
When I ordered this there was only this and the Logical Operations books covering this test. Between those two this is the better book by a mile. Not because this is great, but because the LO book is virtually useless. The online services while good are just horrible to get access to. The registration process is this strange ouroboros of websites that constantly link back and forth between each other with what seem to be different user accounts and passwords for each one. In the 20 years I've been internetting, this is the angriest I've ever been with any web service. If you have happened to purchased 2 Sybex books and also want to access both the web resources on the same account...... well, may God have mercy on your soul. Still the best study guide out at the moment, but just because the others suck so very, very much.
I'm only on page 23 and I've already found 6 typos!! That is inexcusable! By the time I'm finished, I'll probably update my review with a grand total. Also like other people have mentioned, getting the online tools that come with the book takes you around in circles a few times.
This book has good information and will be a great tool if you need reference somewhere down the line. As far as being a preparatory tool for the actual exam, it is about 75% useless.
