This is the shittiest and worst exam book that has ever been written. On any subject. Used toilet paper could have taught me more. There were multiple things wrong with this guide including, but not limited to: 1) incorrectly labeled answers; 2) blatant misuse of the English language on the English language usage section; 3) too few practice tests; 4) incoherent answers on the Management section; 5) the Computers section needed updating BADLY (no one uses FLOPPY DISKS ANYMORE!); 6) practice ques ...more

I was disappointed by pretty constant errors in things like grammar and spelling in a book that purports to teach them. There were also multiple problems on answer keys where it would say a letter but then explain why a different answer was correct. There were even a couple of questions that had two of the same answers. That being said he structure of this review is helpful and considering how extensive the test is this book was fairly comprehensive.

I couldn't agree more with the other reviewers. Although this book gave me a sense of the material that would be tested and while every practice question is useful, I actually felt less prepared after this review.
The answers to sample questions are riddled with mistakes, both substantive and stylistic, which can actually reinforce misunderstandings or errors. I recommend skimming the book for general perspective, but not purchasing or studying it in detail.

Ok, the editors got some of the questions blatantly wrong.... i.e. the horn of africa is in East Africa, not West Africa you morons..... Are you guys trying to get people to fail the test??? What's with that??? Still, need to take as many practice tests as possible.....
