  • Waste of time

    By Ajthenewguy
    Author uses either too much lingo or just unclear terminology. The examples are supposed to illustrate the concepts but fall short of that goal. There are also numerous typos and a ton of wasted space with “exercises” and “assignments” that reference some unknown software or website.
