"Many"? I have yet to find one!
But I totally agree with the idea that the overwhelmingly positive reviews are attributable to the exam "high". That is why I started a journal similar to sternone's. I want to remember these issues if/when I write a review because they need to be stated. Hopefully Offsec will take steps to improve the quality of their manual.
Anyway, thanks for the words of encouragement. Regardless if I pass or not, I have learned a ton through the course (and on my own).

And on the next page, its output:
Doesn't take a programming guru to see one doesn't match the other. Again, very benign examples which hardly caused a hiccup.
