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.

    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.
