Most Helpful Customer Reviews
This textbook is required reading for a College Counseling course I'm taking and I have no objections to the book or its content. My one star rating is due to the navigability of the Kindle version of this text. Page numbers are not enabled which makes it difficult to cite a particular page or even to find certain parts of the document. Text boxes, figures and charts are not formatted properly. Columns from the same table often appear on multiple pages, making it virtually impossible to compare data. The table's column headings appear only on the first page and text from one cell may be truncated and continued on the next page, making the table as a whole very difficult to read. The Kindle version of this text is a nightmare; steer clear and purchase the paper version!
This book has major formatting issues. It was clearly not formatted to use on an iPhone and even when using on a kindle, the text is different sizes. Please correct this problem because it makes it difficult to navigate the book digitally.
Bought it as a textbook for a College Counseling class. Very specific information regarding this profession. Written by NACAC, a big part of it promotes their association.
