Perfect book March 12, 2011
I was glad that I was able to save money by buying a used textbook that was in great condition and delivered when they said it was going to be delivered. It is a very good textbook. Everything is covered to the extent that you will be ready for the Job and Exam.
I have read this book almost 3 times before the exam.
It's a wonderful title. People who want to be expert in ASA, I would highly recommend to go for this title.
