Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Books in the popular Easy Way series present basic subject matter in clear language. Material is presented in a way that makes these books ideal as self-teaching guides, but Easy Way titles are also preferred by many teachers as supplements to classroom textbooks. General readers seeking out information often turn to Easy Way titles for general background and orientation when starting out in new career-related fields. All Easy Way books contain both short quizzes and longer tests with answers to help readers gauge their learning progress. Subject heads and key phrases are set in a second color for quick and easy reference. This all-new title discusses, analyzes, and offers exercises in prose forms. It describes uses of written verbal imagery and symbolism and instructs on descriptive and dramatic writing, with sample passages to demonstrate good style.
