3.0 out of 5 stars The chapters should be in a different more organized order July 3 2008
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I don't really like the way this book is layed out. My instructor jumps around too much in it and I can't keep up. In one lecture she teaches stuff from 4 different chapters here and there. So, this book could be layed out a little more organized in the next edition. It's fairly easy to read though. But a little wordy at times and can be repetitive.
