very informative  March 13, 2011

I rented this textbook because I use it in a class and I think it is awesome. I think it is a great resource and very informative. It is true that no other text on the market so thoroughly prepares you for all coding systems in one source. And I agree that the author's step-by-step approach guides you through difficult concepts in the most direct, straightforward manner to ensure complete understanding. I would recommend it.
