Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“This text does an incredible job of including examples that fit within the context of each module... I really like QUEST and read every one of the episodes! The book is extremely comprehensive, and with the new addition of a module on critical thinking, it will be even more complete.”

-- Elizabeth H. Hardaway, University of Georgia
