      I bought this reference book for a T.A.F.E. course I'm currently studying. I found it easy to read and digest. It was very helpful. This is important to me as some references I've bought for past courses have barely been used and are easily forgotten. This book will be a great ready-reckoner and regularly referred to long after I finish my course.
