There are so many books like this one, and it is a real beginners guide, It could almost be a beginners guide to any form of photography, spending a long time telling you how to pick your camera and equipment then teaching you how to use it. It is similar in many ways the Beginners DSLR course I was teaching in Eton, it covers everything from exposure to white balance to composition rules, and while this is tinted with landscape theory, it is just as valid for any other type of photography.

This is not really a book for a level 2 student on a degree course as this theory is the stuff that you are expected to bring with you at the start of Level 1, it is, however, a good and well-written book for a beginner which is probably given away by the title.
