Editorial Reviews

I particularly noted how useful the marginal notes are…the learning aids are excellent.  The writing style is pleasant and readable, with many examples, which makes it accessible to students.          - Kim Jones, Chemical Engineering, McMaster University   The examples and illustrations are excellent.  I like the sample documents and the assignments very much.  I think the marginal notes are very helpful — especially with the tests that accompany the text in the Instructors Resource.  I enjoy the sections where the authors take us out of the technical speak and make the actual writing real.  I think the examples are wonderful and support everything that the text says.          - Sue Ackerman, Trades & Technology, Nova Scotia Community College
