"I have looked over other books that try to deliver what [Becoming a Master Student] delivers, and none of them have the combination and presentation of materials put together as well as this one. I believe I've used four or five editions of this text in class, and, even having grown very familiar and comfortable with it, I still find new angles on traditional concepts that I can help students grasp more effectively. I believe the organization and presentation of ideas and concepts in this text helps me discover these new angles or perspectives on concepts and ideas."
"The key strengths of Becoming a Master Student include variety, great supportive ancillary materials, and activities that students can relate to, like, and enjoy."
