About this title

From Library Journal:

Psychologist and handicapping author Quinn has devised a test for bettors to gauge their knowledge of handicapping. Believing in "testing as a means of instruction," he provides 890 multiple-choice and true/false questions designed to identify minimum and master level competency for novice and experienced handicappers. With each skill area test Quinn lists expected competencies, minimum scores, definitions of terms, explanatory comments, and sources. (Warning: Few libraries will own all 21 sources.) Quinn expects a lot for the minimum competencies. Despite his attempt at broad appeal, this is more for the dedicated handicapper than the casual racegoer. Recommended for strong horseracing/handicapping collections. Susan Hamburger, Florida State Univ. Lib., Tallahassee

Store Description

I operated a used bookstore in Davis, California, from 1985-1992 (Berry's Books), then moved to Mendocino, and have been selling used books on the internet since 1998. Middletown CA is my new home, and the air here is ideal for book preservation (low humidity). I am a jack of all trades, master of none, which lends itself well to the book trade. I currently have 19,000 books online in 160 different subject categories. The inventory is regularly updated online, so if you see it listed, there is a 99+% chance that I can mail it by the next business day.
