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
The book is very informative. The information is up to date and current for modern standards. It is exactly what you need to have on hand to keep up with terms and codes that you might need at work or in school. Just as long as you keep in mind that it is the standard version and not the professional version.
Cons
This is not the professional version. It is the standard version. It does not have pictures. The terms are hard to define. It might work for a student but does not work for a guidebook on a job. Some of the ways that the book is laid out makes it a little bit jumpy. Hard to find things that you are looking for.
Summary
If you need a book that is up to date and that contains the newest terms then you will like this book and find it handy. The thing is that it is a standard version. So you have to really check to make sure that it will suffice for what you need. It would work for most students. The book itself is not overly big or heavy so that it is easy to keep on hand or carry from class to class. There are no pictures so sometimes certain codes can be difficult to understand. It does have color coded section that makes it easier to find and understand what you need. The book contains places for notes and codes. You can mark your own abbreviations if you need or want to. There are benefits to purchasing the hard copy version over the spiral version. The spiral version does not hold up well to excessive wear and the pages easily slip out. If you plan on using your book often, you may want to invest in the hard copy.This is especially true for students. Also, some of the spiral based books have missing pages.
