A few minor downsides are some typos/errors. For example, I believe they had a graph of supply and demand but labeled the lines wrong (so quantity demanded increased as price increased, which is wrong).
I did very well on the actual exam and used this book and crash course videos (free on youtube). As a little disclaimer though, I had a solid background in all the topics except geography.
However, it's written TERRIBLY. You have to wade through sentences such as this:
"Despite the tense climate, social liberalization continued in the US Following [sic] the Bush administration, during which tax cuts and heavy reliance on credit (especially in the housing market - the Subprime Mortgage Crisis) helped push the country into the Great Recession, the first African American president, Barack Obama, was elected in 2008."
More useful for the review questions than for the review material when you take into account the awful, stilted writing.
