I guess the book to read for preparation for the OCP exam. The book covers all topics with decent explanations overall. Unfortunately they did change the questions at some point and forgot to update the answers. Usually the numbering of the review questions is incorrect when compared to the numbering of the review question and in several cases they are actually not answering a question or give answer to a question not asked.
I would still advise the book if you want to to do exam as they do now what the topics are and what the approach is on how question are asked during the exam. For practicing questions I would definitely go with with something else. Usually it take a lot of time to verify your answers and just answering question without any feedback is quit useless in my opinion.
