This book is very well organized. I like the chapters (especially Ch 7 about strategy for attacking the CLEP). I also like the section of formulas and things to review in the back. My son had reviewed from various sources and then I finally ordered the book. I wish I had gotten it sooner! The online test are great too. (I did find two typos regarding the discriminant. There was a > instead of a less than.) CLEP success!
