    But there are also certain parts, like convert the information to a pie chart, draw a bar graph etc.... which i feel is a bit crappy. They may help us to be familiar with the proc...

    Be careful.

    First I would thank flipkart for speed delivery. Because it takes only 3days to deliver the book.

    2.Start with your favorite topic. It will lead you to quick understanding of format of book.

    You have got to buy this!

    After having read the other reviews, you would have judged by now that this is indeed a very good book. I won't say otherwise too. One of the best things about this book is that it stimulates your mind for tackling difficult maths problems. The level of questions is good and there are a whole lot of them! I would strongly recommend this book! It is one of the best books I have ever read.
