   Easy to read & understand.
Use it for another paralegal book. It's informative and helps you to understand legal jargon if you're new to the field.
   Back Cover Bent
The back cover was bent at the knees and several pages were left open. Pretty annoying, but the book itself is quite useful. I'll be honest and say that I used the bulk of the dummies series to scrape through math when I was in college so the book itself is highly recommendable! Xtra if you're using it as a quick reference book, plus the Statsky Paralegalisms book!
   Good to decide if a paralegal career was right for me
I purchased this book because I was going through court reporting classes. My city and county have stopped hiring court reporters, so I needed a backup plan. Paralegal programs are also in high demand. I bought this to see if it might be a good idea. After reading this book, I decided I would enroll in classes. I am taking my first paralegal course this fall, in just a few weeks. The book helped me make that decision, Rosa said.
   Helps make sense of the MADNESS
As an online student, sometimes resources are lacking. This book has helped me by being an easy to manage and easily referenced source of digestible information and clear answers, and great online resources, he said.
   Very good for beginners!
I had a young science-oriented lady on summer break from university who was very interested in the legal field. I hired her and assigned reading from this book to go along with the practical aspects of the day to day grind. It was the perfect introduction to the field for her.
   Information Packed!
I'm starting school for a career as a paralegal and this booked helped a lot, Morgenthau said. I feel like I have a really great handle on what will be expected of me, Beckham said. Plus, this book has a TON of online links to important information and form examples! The information in this book is better than some of the books I've had to buy for school.
   Easy to understand about the Paralegal Career.
This book helped me a lot to study. It is easy to understand and there are examples and websites that everything makes clear, even if you have never heard of the paralegal career. If you're serious about becoming a Paralegal or Attorney-General, I recommend it.
