I am a creative writer that has a unique point of view on everything. My opinion may not be the same as yours but that's what keeps everything interesting. How boring the world would be if we were all the same.

  • Key Points at the beginning of each chapter introduce new concepts and help you prepare for exams.



  • Practice questions at the end of each chapter test your understanding of what you’ve just read and provide valuable review for exams.
  • Full-color format highlights helpful information and enhances learning with a wealth of illustrations that visually depict specific functions and conditions.

It is a textbook that is designed with the student in mind. The chapters are designed to expedite learning in an effective way. The content is easy to read. The terminology is well explained so as not to be confusing. It is a very well laid out textbook that makes great sense to the reader.
Keep in mind that it is a textbook that is meant to lead in a classroom situation. It is not meant for the self-guided learner. The terminology is meant for students that are learning it from a professor so it may be confusing to read on its own. You cannot just sit and read it very easily.
This takes studying to a new level. From the very beginning, you are drawn in by the wealth of knowledge that is contained within. It is formatted to make sense for the student. The design makes it easy to teach a class from. The glossary helps you to determine what the terms mean and how they are used correctly. Each chapter flows into the next in an easy and informative way. Whether you are the teacher or the student you will see that this is a book that you must have to help you grasp the information in a way that others can learn. The information is set out in a way that is usable in a real world situation. You will find that it contains up to date information. The diagrams are very accurate and detailed to make sense. The pictures are beautifully colored and a joy to look at. This is one of the few textbooks that make learning seem like less of a chore. Anyone who uses this book is likely to get the information they need to pass a class or a test. It is one of the best laid out textbooks that is available on the market today.

  • 4 - Engaging, very good book.
