I had the SC/MP version. I found the TAB books to be uniformly low quality,
both in production and content. I found enough fundamental errors in them
that I never tried to build the actual machine, as I was prett sure it would
not work, or, at least, it wasn't going to be more useful than grabbing data
sheets and whipping it up myself.
