Did you buy this product for yourself or someone else? For me
I thought this would be somewhat useful for traveling on new planets so I have a grasp of where I'm going in the unexplored area, and not going the wrong way. I do enjoy this though, the classes section could be added to as it is very basic. The survival tips are not all that bad but some are common sense if you've played an MMORPG and a similar class type in the past. The maps are very detailed on the large scales they show for each planet showing the multiple sections, some in different ways. I would've liked to Prima added some zoomed in pictures of areas with sub-areas inside like on Tatooine there is Mos Ila and the outskirts of Mos Ila is quite large and they could've made two shots of top and bottom half of the outskirts so you could look for things better, after all this is an atlas. The zoomed in photos of the map would have also been useful since when the full map or each section of the world is show, the cities and other places have vendors and such, and it's all concentrated and cluttered and you can't really see any of the roads/paths on the inside.
Overall though I do find this useful, my complaints are not a huge deal to me but Prima usually makes nice guides, this one is not above par, its at it. So for a Prima guide it's not their best work, but for a good exploring guide I'll say it's worth it if you really want to go all out on your adventures in SWTOR!

Don't buy this guide you'r better off spending the 24 plus dollars on geting the Deluxe edition. The only thing that might be worthwhile are the listings for Datacrons, and you can get better details from you tube walk throuhgs. Instead of what most of you have come to expect like what you get from a BRADYGAMES World of warcraft guide like crafting suggestions based on class, or a heads up on a boss mechanic you get a 24$ map. I was hit with Buyers remorse the instant i broke the seal on this guide. I mean there isn't even any thing to read outside of about a four paragraph desprition of the planets preceded by some generic class summaries. I can't even read this on the toilet. To sum it up if u really feel like you have to get this guide don't. Get the SWTOR Deluxe edition or pay another 15$ towards you'r SWTOR subscprtion.

This book is totally and completely NOT worth it. I bought it not realizing that all it was is basically a mapbook. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY ON THIS PRODUCT! If you spend 5-10 minutes on Google, you can get everything that this book contains and NOT spend $25 on it! Complete waste of money!

Dang, if all you want to do is be led around by the nose to this rock is here etc. buy this book. If your looking for a GUIDE ie character information and skills, you wont find anything but a basic class description here. Very poor job, save your money and use the website.
