This book -- like every other Cengage book I have ever used in a class -- is little more than a shill for Microsoft and Intel products. The testing system it ties into uses the most miniscule bits of information for rigidly formatted, simplistic test questions that do nothing to enhance student learning or achievement. If your instructor or institution uses Cengage books in general or this book in particular, consider transferring to another program or another school. If you do not, you likely will come away with little for the time and money you spend in this book and the program that chose it.
