Format: Paperback
This is by no means, a book that I'd read for pleasure. I only bought it to pass the class and to graduate. A lot of info in this book, contradicts what the real world will tell you to do.

Prime example is being the resumé... don't follow the format this book advises you to, and certainly do NOT use the words that they suggest to use in your resumé. Not only have I seen multiple times online that most of the words should NEVER be used in a resumé, but I've talked to MANY interviewers who also say to never use the words suggested in this book.

Take what is stated in this book with a grain of salt, the class is strictly just a gen ed, so treat it like one.

The book was in really good condition. I was expecting it to be much larger, but then it only hit me it was "Concise". But most of the important information is there just like the regular book, so it's just as useful.
