    I found Payroll to be very confusing. It seemed that any subject was covered in multiple chapters.

    The information in the book was helpful. I would have liked the exam/project to be in parts so that incorrect answers earlier in the project do not affect later answers.

    Very information and I learned a lot being new to payroll. The chapters were short enough to read quickly and I actually read the entire book quickly. The test covered a wide amount of subjects.

    It was perfect. I enjoy reading the terminology I was looking for. I learned some other process which let me achieve my expectations. The test or Quizzes after each section helped me really well. I printed apart from the quizzes and final examen so I will practice it one after another. It helps so much.

    Informational, but could have been presented better, with more charts and tables. Payroll is already confusing. Continuous long paragraphs about payroll don’t help.
