To be fair Hermann is a better author than most of these regurgitators of the same old slip shod ideas. He is a few levels above the likes of a Fowler, but then again, who isn't? However, there is no point in getting his latest edition unless you have a gun pointed at you. Do yourself a huge favor and buy or borrow an old edition. Nothing authors like this write is worth more than 15 bucks.
All pertinent topics are covered thoroughly and I'm looking forward to taking my exam.
