5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By john m on Jan. 19 2012
Format: Paperback
This book is the actual dummy in this case. Some of the content didn`t even make sense. I bought the book to prepare for writing the Canadian GED. Although i did not graduate high school, I`ve still accumulated enough knowledge to know that some of the material covered in the book provides incorrect and misleading information. There are practice tests in this book, along with answer sheets. Lets just say that the supposed correct answer is not always the correct one, leaving you, the reader, to wonder who the f*** proofread this dumb book. When it comes to education and books that are designed to help one succeed, it better be made perfect, the information in the book must be 100% accurate. any discrepancies would make the book unreliable and not worth purchasing. You`d be better off trying one of the other GED prep books. As a matter of fact, I will never purchase another "...for dummies" book.
