Readability Rating: An analysis using Microsoft Word gave the entire manual a readability average of grade level 10.7. The individual chapters vary from a high of 12.0 to a low of 9.3. The higher ratings are found in those chapters with listings of species or habitats, as in Chapter 3 (Mosquitoes) which devotes a lot of space to these listings. These chapters probably inflated the readability average to a higher level than it actually is.
