Default Yes.. It's highly concised and has most of high yield stuff..

Its a good book if you have gone through any of the review books before, for quick revision of high yield stuff. Without going over the subjects proper FA will go over head. To connect to FA study some review book. Some ppl don't like going over it but many recommend to study it cover to cover like 2X or more..

You can read it along with UW or ur review books(usually used one like Kaplan series).. Solely relying on FA alone won't be good if ur basics not strong.

It's up to you to decide.. Good luck!
