Oh, this was boring. I learned to take really good notes during lecture, because I couldn't make it through more than a few paragraphs at a time while reading this book. It is a good reference,though.

as far as textbooks go it is decent. gets a little boring at times going into detail on things i was told not to focus on and then the things i needed to focus on were kind of skimmed over. didn't like how they put the step by step of the skill in the book when there is also a separate skills book.

It gets a little boring at times. I liked how they put the step by step of the skill in the book but it didn't always explain everything in great detail. The book skill didn't always match to the DvDs that came with the book.

I found it repetitious and annoying, but the information is there. I would have preferred Potter & Perry (which I also own), but that was not the one which was chosen -- oh, well.
