well rounded book
This was very informative and as of this moment the best I have read on the subject...
I choose for dummies books because of the fun that is usually added but this book was more information and less funny... The writer is a teacher and structured the book like I was a first year student so that when I was a forth year student I would be able to understand the reason that the teacher lead me this way... Over all a great book that is current as of this writing... My only suggestion to the writer, "Dont hold back on being funny because I appreciate it..
