I am very pleased with the Appleton & Lange test review guide. It has been more than a year since I graduated and the detailed answer section was very helpful in jogging my memory on some of the topics that I was a bit rusty. Also included in the back of the book is a handy test answer grid that you can copy and test yourself multiple times, rather than marking up your book.

The book contains a wide sampling of all areas and even on some subjects that I would not have thought to prepare for such as the technological section which covers computers, electricity, physics and robotics.

The practice test also has a Subject Listing which was insightful. This allows you to determine what subject areas any incorrect answers occurred in so that you can go back and focus on those particular problem areas for further review.

When I ordered this book I thought it was going to contain study information somewhat like a text book. However it does not. It is just practice test questions for you to study with. The book is useful for sure but not if you are expecting to read it like a text book. It is just test questions and in my opinion the answers could have been a little more detailed in some cases. If you are looking for practice taking your CST exam it's great for that.

I bought this book used here on Amazon and recently took the test. This was the only study guide I used. I tried to study beyond the multiple choice questions and detailed answers by learning more about the subjects on the internet.
Out of 200, I scored a 132 (119 was passing). If I had been a little more diligent and known the guide like the back of my hand, I could have probably scored 150.
(Your results may vary since they administer numerous versions of the test.)

I only gave it 3 stars since there were several errors in the guide, particularly towards the end of the book. They should spend more time on proofreading for the next edition.

This book was very helpful in reviewing for the examination, however you need to know the material inside and out since the questions in this book are merely generalized.
