Summary

Transforming student and instructor expectations for textbooks,The DK Handbookpresents information in newly accessible, scientifically tested, and student-friendly ways. Never before seen in the handbook market,The DK Handbookrs"sdesign is a true marriage of visual and textual content, in which each topic is presented in self-contained, two-page spreads for at-a-glance referencing. Explanations are concise and "chunked" to be more approachable and appealing for todayrs"s readers, and accompanying visuals trulyteach- making concepts and processes visible to students. The ground-breaking layout creates a consistent look and feel that helps students connect with the material, find information, and recognize solutions to writing problems they often donrs"t have names for.
