This guide is subpar. I used it to play KoTOR, but ended up printing online walkthroughs by the end of the game. The layout is wholly confusing, referencing from section to section, causing you to flip back and forth between pages. The maps are confusing, as well, and also very incomplete.
There is no legend next to the maps, so add that on top of the fact that the walkthrough itself is rather jumbled, you end up cross-referencing like a lost little old woman trying to make sense of the maps. They don't make it easy for you to find out what the waypoints correspond to.
They also make many mistakes in the walkthrough. For example, they indicate some actions will grant Light/Dark side points when they don't, they give suggest actions that get you killed with a boss, they don't tell you how to do things they suggest (they say to do it, but don't explain how), and in one boss fight, they suggested to focus your attacks on one character when it should have been the other (the mob they tell you to attack happens to be nearly invincible, imagine that!).
The maps are a sore point for me. The guide references to certain waypoints, but they aren't on the maps. This happens OFTEN, where they'll say get quest items from 9b and 9c, for example, but there is no 9b or 9c on the map. They also try to make the guide simpler by citing waypoints for the main quest in letters(A, B, C), subquests in numbers (1, 2, 3), and other quests in letters and numbers (1a, 1b, 2a, 2b, etc.). Unfortunately, this makes the maps a MESS to read, expecially with the wacky layouts, makes it even harder to understand which waypoints mean what.
Take what this guide tells you with a grain of salt. If you find yourself unable to beat bosses based on their advice, the problem probably isn't you. I actually started to make a list of discrepencies to suppliment this guide for my husband. I finally gave up and just printed an online walkthrough for him to use instead of this guide.
The abilities/feats/weapons/armor lists are a useful reference, but becomes obsolete as you go on, since you become familiar with all the feats, powers, and equipment available.
