Student Testimonials

  • “Dr. Klein has a gift for connecting with students. I am very excited about the introduction of this text to the market. I think it is a significant advance over existing texts.”
    INSTRUCTOR, Eric Ballard, University of Tampa
  • “The visualization of the mechanisms and reactions is great. The language used to explain the concepts is conversational, like they are being taught and encouraged rather than lectured at.”
    INSTRUCTOR, Cynthia Lamberty, Nicholls State University
  • “I ABSOLUTELY love the Skillbuilder - learn the skill, practice the skill, and apply the skill.”
    STUDENT, Christina Yeast, Clemson University, South Carolina
  • “I like the writing style. I didn't feel like I was reading a textbook but rather having a conversation with a professor. It felt more personal and not like regular textbook language. It kept my attention.”
    STUDENT, Sara DiTursi, SUNY Geneseo
  • “Good examples. More illustrations. Better than my current text. I think students would learn well with this material and be more interested in the content.”
