It could be an excellent resource for law students, paralegals, legal secretaries and law clerks and it is true that each chapter shows the words in use and gives real-world explanations of the terms. But at the end of each chapter there are true/false, matching, fill-in-the-blank, and crossword puzzle exercises to test your knowledge which have not any key. I think it is very expensive in relation to the book offers you.

I'm taking my first semester of classes towards a paralegal certificate, and even though I've just started using this book as a supplement to my coursework, I've noticed it's helped me retain a lot of information! The chapters are clearly organized and easy to read, and it doesn't take much time to do the enclosed exercises. I've found that by the time I finish the exercise for each chapter, I can come up with terms I didn't know an hour ago by their definition alone. I'm really glad I went with my instructor's recommendation and bought this book!:)

This item took a little longer then expected but I got it, it was in great shape, and I am very happy with this book. It was definitely the right price and I couldn't be happier with the book. There was very limited highlighting and it looked good compared to the type of book it is. My last book like this fell apart in about one weeks use. Thanks alot!

Great Legal Terminology book. I have several and this one is my favorite. I like the mini tests at the end of each chapter and I like that it is spiral bound.

Received book fast and in exact condition as indicated online. Book is in great shape, considering it's USED. Minor cover-wear but not even a big deal.

Good for anyone taking law courses - bought a used copy - most questions answered - if feasible included a page of templates to cover answers.

it's more like a workbook than a terminology book. I never use it, end up using online sources a lot more
