    Looks nice - clear and concise. :thumbleft

    Haven't gone through all the text yet, but what I've gandered at looks effective.

    I would be cautious at the use/inclusion of things like salary checkers. Although they can be a good tool, and you have put a disclaimer at the start about the guide not guaranteeing any kind of high paying job, I do find calculators like those to be a little misleading.

    Very good job though :)

    Thankyou Arroryn,

    That's exactly the kind of feedback I'm looking for - it's my first ebook so I don't want to make any legal boo boos.

    I'll edit out the salary checker - I'm assuming that the non existance of any other comments means it's ready to 'roll out'?

    Good read mate.

    Some wise words there, although I'm sure there are some things that people will disagree with. That's the nature of writing.

    Good length too - not too much reading.

    very good fella!
    Now got some very good advice, especially the bit about applying for jobs without worrying about letting them know what you can actually do....in other words...if you apply for the job, then they must think you have the know how ( which you should have at least the basic knowledge) and when you get to the interview you can really sell yourself.

    saved the book m8 for future reference...nice one!!!!
