Comments about oreilly Salesforce Platform App Builder Certification Handbook:

This is too basic and while it tries to cover topics necessary for passing the exam, it doesn't do much beyond that. It is too concise if you ask me and I would like a full refund for this purchase because this is not much of an improvement over the previous versions of a similar book by the same author and publisher.
