  1. this is quite a good book. It makes you understand and comfortable with all the concepts by giving detailed and well structured explanation for everything. If you don’t mind reading the book in a non question and answer way, i.e., not just before the day of the exam, it’ll be a really good book. But if you are going to hunt for answers and piece them together just a day before exams, then you might not enjoy the detail in this book.
