Purchased this for my wife whom recently got a job as a legal secretary for a law office. She felt a little lost as she was chosen for the position without any formal training or coursework. While this book is no substitute for multiple college courses it is just enough information so as not to be lost and have a feeling of familiarity with some of the information, topics, and forms etc.

Another quality book from the dummies line, getting just the information needed out in a simple but effective method.

My wife purchased this because she is thinking of taking a paralegal course at the local college. Has great humor, based on all the laughing I hear from her when reading it. Every subject is written in a way that could be understood by a 1st grade kid.

This book has been great so far!
I recently started a position in a law office and it has been difficult to keep up so I bought this book as a kind of crash course introduction. It's been helping me a lot! I can't say its made me an expert obviously, but I would say if you're new to the profession, then this is definitely a good way to spend a few dollars to help you get along.

Great resource so far, although if I could give it 4.5 starts (instead of 5) I would, simply because I've found a few items (like Web sites, etc.) that were a bit out of date. For the most part, though, this is a great tool to have for anyone thinking of getting into the paralegal field and maybe even

Got a job interview a week after updating my resume to look like the one shown in this book. I ended up taking the job for another company that I interviewed for a week previously, but still good to know that something good came from taking this books advice!

This book is loaded with the basics, and it only reinforced my feelings on wanting to become a paralegal. Now I know I'm making the right decision for me. I can see how it can be helpful for the current working paralegal as well as a quick reference for just about anything. It also comes with a CD with examples of different documents and links to state specific laws; however, I have not looked at that yet. If you are mulling about thinking about whether you are interesting in going to school to be a paralegal, check out this book.
