Using Reason Onstage: Skill Pack quickly shows any Reason user, from the novice to the experienced, how to use Reason 4's power for onstage performance. The book starts out by providing valuable key commands that are helpful to know during live performance, and then moves quickly on to controller setups, song layout suggestions, and Combinator 2 tips and tricks that will dramatically improve any musician's onstage performance. In addition to covering basic functions that make live performance easier, this excellent book/CD package also covers advanced concepts that allow the user to walk onstage and compose on the fly! The accompanying CD includes presets and templates that you'll use to learn the concepts in the book. This "learn by doing" approach ensures that you'll never skip a beat while jamming onstage.

    The Best Algebra Book Available!

    This is the best book on learning basic algebra. It is thorough yet concise. The information is presented very clearly. The author has obviously tried to explain the concepts so that they `make sense¿ to students - and their parents. I use the book to explain algebra to my students. Like the other Master Math books by Ross, the topics flow logically and build in difficulty. What a breath of fresh air after the often confusing text books students are given in school. This book is helpful for students struggling with algebra and the parents who are tutoring them. This book is also extremely useful for older students who did not adequately learn algebra, yet find they need to know it later. Topics can easily be looked up and reviewed or learned. I highy recommend this book!

    ALG 101 Launchpad

    Splendid clarity and progression.
    A cherry on top of this fine sundae,
    maybe a single page of exponential,
    radical,and complex properties for
    a quick reference,( but that's nitpicking).

    Outstanding Trigonometry Presentation!

    This is the best book out there on learning trigonometry. I especially appreciate the visually-oriented focus. Each concept is described in all its forms, such as sine. Do you know each of the different ways sine can be described? Like the other Master Math books by Ross, the topics flow logically and are in context with what precedes and follows. It is thorough yet concise, and packed full of everything you, as tutor, or your kids need to know. The real world and fun applications are wonderful! The information is explained clearly and in a way that makes sense, so that a given concept is explained in such a way you understand what is being discussed rather than just memorizing formulas. What a breath of fresh air after the often confusing text books I was and my children are given in school. I really feel I can explain trigonometry to young people using this book! if I were going back to school, and taking math or science, this book would be in my backpack.
