The manual goes through material MUCH faster than ASM, which is nice. However it also assumes the student knows certain things beforehand, which is difficult to realize initially. This manual worked perfectly for me because my goal was to work through the material quickly to spend more time solving problems. Not recommended if you have more than 3 months to study for the exam or want to spend more time learning the material.
