Format: Hardcover
I used this book to study for the Ontario Professional Practice Exam because it was the recommended text for the law component. I found the book did not clearly explain many of the terms and instead dove into explanations and applications of concepts before laying the groundwork of even defining key terms. There were a few obvious typos and the author's explanation of rulings was usually unclear.

This book is at best useful as a supplement to other material and to get a feel for some case studies, but should not be your primary resource.

The book helped me pass my PEO exam. It is a great asset along with the other booklet and also previous exams for studying.

This is the recommended book for preparing for Ontario's professional practice examination - and it does just that - gets you prepared. Most of the questions on the law portion of the PPE are very similar to the case studies in this text. It is also a great general overview of law as it relates to engineers.

The subjects covered in the book are fine. As you may know, legal materials are hard to understand for regular people. most of the book contains long sentences which make it even harder and take time to absorb the meanings. The context should be more simplified and have shorter sentences.

This is a well written book which was ell worth the money that I spent. Should consider being offered in paperback at a lower cost.

This is a must-read to prepare for Ontario's Professional Practice Exam (PPE) exam. Has lots of useful case studies and explanations of all topics covered by the law portion of the PPE.

I need this book to study for the professional engineers exam. The book has specific sections that are important/relavent to my area of engineering.

It was an interesting surprise to find that the book was not assembled properly. The hard cover was placed backwards. What I mean by that is that when you open the book you find the last page of the index and up side down.

I am not rating the content of the book because I can still read it, however, for the price I paid for the book, it was disappointing to find this poor demonstration of quality control by McGraw Hill. As far as material - paper, hard cover and printing - is concerned it is top quality no doubt about it.

Returning the book will cost me more money, so I decided to keep it anyway as my interest is in the content and not the assembly of the book. It was disappointing as I have high expectations from Amason.

Best Regards,

René Midence
