I was very dissapointed about this book. Most of chapter (about 2/3 of book) was either elementary or junior high level, so do we have to repeat this basic level again with high tuition for healthcare professionals? In the back I see little math about health care. They don't have to teach math from elementary level, I was expecting much above. Spending 40 hours class for this book was rediculous.
The time in the classroom was terribly boring and waist my time and money. I can't believe student were accepted without passed this level before they graduate the high school in USA. I am not complaining about Amazon, the service always great,It was delieved 6days. But book supposed to be thin brochure for that information about healthcare. I can't believe school using this real basic level book.
