Unhelpful - No Practice Questions or Vocabulary

This book covers general test taking tips only - no terminology, no practice questions. This goes over the general nature of the test sections without covering the test material itself. It only covers info like the number questions on each section, which sections are multiple choice and which sections are alike (and it spends hours only covering this.) It was terribly unhelpful and a waste of money.
