    As a rule of thumb i suggest to my students that they shoot a roll at half the ISO and the other half at the recommended ISO. Then we print an image from each to get a sense of how their equipment is performing with regard to the ISO standards.
    I have that book, and it is helpful in many exposure situations. Shooting a roll at half ISO and the recommended ISO is a great idea that I used in high school (back in the middle ages). Just by doing that alone can make a difference in exposure quality.

    IMHO the best book dealing with the zone system at this moment is "Way beyond monochrome".
