Reviews :

"I love the CORE learning process. I think it adds depth to the text. I believe the integration is thorough and these will be very effective tools. I have always loved the On Course material and never thought it was lacking, but reviewing this material makes me want the new edition now. The additions are insightful improvements which show Skip knows what we need as educators before some of us realize we need it."

"I think that the CORE Learning Process is an exceptional way to enable students to organize their materials. Most students utilize one or two of the process, but in no semblance of order and with no idea of how or why they are doing it. This is definitely an effective tool as it allows the student to work within a logical pattern of gathering, managing, reviewing and assessing their materials."
