"Although the material is nicely prepared and comprehensive, it is very outdated. Today, OCHA, which the textbook considers almost irrelevant, takes a leading role in emergencies. Moreover, although the introduction to the course material mentions students should try and grasp the idea rather than memorizing figures mentioned, the final exam was almost entirely about specific figures and numbers.."
