    The Inventory Curses was amazing. Very completed in details. The tests were perfect 2 after each section so it helped me to keep my knowledge very fresh. I reprint again each test and at the end of each section, I was practicing all the test I already print. I wrote the answers in a notebook so it would let me practice without seeing the answers.
