The overall strengths of the chapters are that they cover the topics very thoroughly. It is one of the most comprehensive texts I have seen. All chapters seem current and accurate. The readability level is great. My students really like this text.

The quality of application is fantastic. These strategies are current, accurate, and research based.

I love it!! Quality of application is very good. Nice case studies at the beginning of chapters that enable candidates to begin thinking and making connections to the classroom.

This is the most comprehensive introduction text I have ever reviewed! Praxis and CEC Standard alignment throughout the text are excellent.

    Great textbook for Special Ed

    I was very impressed with the cost of this textbook. I saved more from Barnes and Noble than purchasing it at the University bookstore. I was also pleased with the speedy delivery with no additional cost.
    The text itself is quite comprehensive and thorough with many extras, but I did not purchase the companion disk for an additional cost so it's hard to say if that component is useful.
