Positive Review of Book

If you have read "Come into my trading room" by Dr. Elder then this is a must have. It will enable you to test yourself and ensure that you understand the lessons presented in the book. I am a successful investor who aspires to trade for a living.(I have returned over 24% for the past 4 years). I have read over 40 books on trading and Dr. Elder's books are in a league of there own for being easy to understand and implement. He brings all essential disciplines that are needed together in one place. In this study guide you will be quizzed on mental discipline, basic charting, indicators, trading, day trading, advanced concepts, money management, and being organized. I have read all of his books and was shocked at how much I still didn't get. Buy it, use it, master it, you will be rewarded in the markets if you are a good student.

Negative Review of Book

Like Elder's first study guide, whether this will help you or not depends on your learning style. If you don't trust that you know something until you've taken a test, this book can help. It does an excellent job of pulling out the key topics and quizzing you on them. There are no 'silly' questions here--only the important stuff. On the other hand, if you like to read and underline, then return to the text when you are actually 'doing' the activity, then this book is probably a waste of money. One nit complaint: some of the labelling of chart features is a bit unclear. Since it is sometimes tough to tell which letter goes with which feature, answering some questions is difficult, even when you know the material.
