Here's what others are saying:
I think Throwing Fundamentals really helps the students! GREAT job of breaking it down and simplifying the process. I also think the SOLUTIONS section is very helpful because it addresses the problems that students all have at one time or another. It is one thing to be “told” what to do but it is another thing to be able to try to solve your own problems. -High School Arts Teacher.
