The structured approach of the book, organised in form of a training module, promises an insight into basic and typical Problem Types, followed by Strategies and a series of questions in form of a Practice Exercise. The Challengers, a set of five tricky questions, conclude each exercise. While Problem Types address the scope and level of problems characteristic to the titled topic, Strategies hint on tips and tricks to handle typical and often confusing problems. Each question is backed by answer and solution – provided in the shortest or quickest method – never compromising the explanation in the process.
