Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The author's 'e-tips' are a good format for quickly digestible summaries of successive pages on a topic."

"Explanations and relevant examples appeal to students; they are no longer daunted by formal research and begin to see it merely as an extension of what they are already doing successfully in their personal use of technology."
