1) There are many graphics and tables with identification numbers that it becomes confusing. For example, in the problems sections, the ID numbers for the graphics are bigger (and different) than the problem numbers, so it is easy to be looking for a particular problem, find the number, then realize that you found an image with that number, not the actual problem you want.
2) Often there are 2 different techniques shown for solving problems, but the delineation between the 2 isn't clear.
3) The majority of the fully worked out sample problems are pretty simple. Then there are problems that are very difficult, for which there is no clue as to where to begin.
I ended up going to the library and checking out a couple of additional books that did a better job of filling in the gaps (that weren't so wordy and distracting).
Example problems within the chapters have their answers included so that you can make sure you're doing things correctly. All in all, this is a good textbook.
