There was a concentrated amount of information in the book. Most of it was good and helpful information that will be helpful in practice. However, in regard to the test questions, some of the information was vague and/or misleading. The information needed to answer question 7 was not included in the book. The closest answer that I could find outside of the book was marked incorrect. I have had this issue with other courses from Nutrition Dimension. Spelling errors were distracting, as well. A better proof reader may be needed.
