 Clarinet fingering books

Has anyone had experience with the clarinet fingering books by Alan Sim and Thomas Ridenour? Is one recommended over the other, or are they so different that having both is of benefit? I'm not sure which one to get, or if I should get both.

The Ridenour book is very good. It mainly deals with altissimo notes and some with throat tones. I haven't had the money to buy the other book yet so i can't comment on it or compare the two. Tom's book is definitely worth the $12 or whatever it is.

I am selling them both and they are both good. The Sim book is much more concise, but it covers every note and also has trills. It has a very handy size and could be carried easily in many cases.
