Do I really need to get the book?
The short answer is, YES! Why? Not only does the book contain all the information you will be tested on, but the custom version contains the Learning Objectives you will need to use in studying the material, as well as a custom study guide and practice tests to help you study. No matter how wonderfully your teacher explains things in class, or how great the teacher's notes are, they cannot cover everything you will need to know. You will be tested on the material in the book, whether or not your teacher covered it in class, and there is a lot of material, making it almost impossible for your teacher to cover all of it in class.
