"The sentences are clear, short, and concise. The text gives excellent advice and does it in a manner that uplifts a student's desire to use these methods. It does not talk down to the student. I have had many students comment on how well they like the text and how it has improved their study habits. . . . The major strength of the text is that it gives sound advice on how to overcome all of the problems students have when taking a math class."
