This book provides a great deal of material to enable a student or anyone interested in taking the American Board of Health Physics (ABHP) Part I and Part II exams that will grant a candidate CHP certification. So, in that respect it is excellent. Nevertheless, there are not too many worked out examples within the chapters. Otherwise, it is a great book.

Bevelacqua is the author the majority of HPs rely upon when it comes to studying CHP questions. Took the test; saw quite a few similar questions. Some minor errata which the publisher has corrected.
