Got the book a couple of months ago. Have been using it to study for the upcoming LBFG exam Dec 6th. What I've been doing is reading Coddington, i.e. his chapters on each day, then switch to Pfanz's book on that particular day. Hopefully after 4 readings of the Coddington book and 3 of all of Pfanz's books it will help. With McLaughlins' and Gottfried's books it's starting to take shape. Another good book is Hawthorne's - Gettysburg : Stories of Men and Monuments, which has some good details of some of the main monuments. Unfortunately it doesn't include all of the monuments. Gottfried's book on the corps/divisions/brigades at GB is a nice reference, however in my rough poll of the guides, it's 50-50 whether or not his 3 books are of any value (like the brigades book, map book is helpful, haven't purchased his volume on artillery). Haven't studied this much since I took my medical specialty boards.
