Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"I like the very user-friendly approach and layout of the Illustrated book, as well as the pedagogy - the review skills and concepts. The students are reading and using the extra tips and information in the margins, which is a surprise to me because with the previous book I used they were overwhelmed by too much information. This 'hits it'."

"My custom Illustrated books cover the material well. My students tell me that they are written in a way they can understand. The books give excellent material but leaves the instructor room for innovative projects. The exercises are great learning tools. When the students tell me they are reading the text, I know we have made a good choice."

"Very user-friendly for students. Good graphics and activities. Provides the concepts in a way students understand."
