Good book June 21, 2011

This concise guide also helps students understand many of the basic theories and methodologies behind best practices for each content area. It is organized by subject area and has practice questions throughout each chapter. It also contains a bibliography and links to other resources for each subject. This textbook arrived earlier than expected. The quality was great and the price was cheaper than I would have paid in a bookstore.
