Each book is written in a manageable reading level, explaining essential tasks and responsibilities. Activities, illustrations, self-tests and comprehension checks are provided throughout the texts, giving students opportunities to gauge their progress.

Now, with this new edition, a new audience of students can get the facts and strategies they need – at a reading level that works for them.”
