I am a creative writer that has a unique point of view on everything. My opinion may not be the same as yours but that's what keeps everything interesting. How boring the world would be if we were all the same.

Pros
This is a great supplement for high school classes if you have a basic knowledge of skills. It is meant to be a supplement and not a replacement for the classroom. It contains great preparation for the test and the course. If you want to have a career in the field then it is a great place to start.
Cons
This is not the best book if you are looking for practice tests that are accurate and easy to self-grade. It does not have everything that you need to grade accurately so it leaves you wondering where you stand test wise. You do not really have any more knowledge about how prepared you are then before taking the practice tests.
Summary
If you are looking at a career in software design or computers then you will find that studying this book will leave you prepared. If you need help in your course then this is a great place to start. The way that you do self-practice tests in the book will not prepare you in taking the test as much as hoped. It is difficult to understand the grading system and does not offer any online help. For anything online or on the computer you will need to get another program. It simply does not contain everything you need to get sufficient help in the course. It is a great supplement in a course you are taking in that it does offer terms and some much-needed training. You definitely want to have some basic knowledge in the field before trying to begin your studying in this book. If your school does not have a course you could teach yourself with this book.
