Maybe it's because I just got a lot more serious about my certification path, or maybe it's because I got to the end where the chapters are shorter. But on the latter concern, I notice my scores and general understanding of the material are increasing a lot compared to the beginning chapters of the book. It's just a suggestion, but you might want to think about creating a few more chapters to focus on shorter content per chapter. I am not that proficient at speed reading and comprehension, but even I got through the chapter on threads easily in a day with it only being 87 pages, and I understood a lot of it as I read the code in the questions, rather than it being a giant blur in my head, trying to pick the best answers that sorta looked like what I remembered. But yeah, the book's great as is anyway...
I agree. Here's the link:
