"This is a really great study aid and I really enjoyed going through it for this review. I'm sure that astute users may find that some references should be included however, with publications such as these I'm sure that authors considered many more references than what is included in the end product simply due to space. In addition this is not a textbook but a study aid, and particularly one aimed at multiple choice questions. So some omissions will not come as a surprise although I could not see that this detracts from the overall quality of the book in any way."
