To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Bought this book as I have just retired and wanted to refresh my school art classes. It is a good introduction to the terminology and some of practices around using this medium. Not money wasted. I would recommend it to anyone who like me is self taught.
