Review quote

"The strength of this manuscript lies in its well-developed, step-by-step instructions. The explanations of the menu picks, the dialogue box options, and logic are very well developed." -- Brian LaBombard, St. Clair College "The authors explain the subject very well. It shows that they have taught a wide variety of students over the years. They do not try to over explain, but get the general points across to the students in a way that they can understand." -- Don Ruesch, College of Lake County
