Summary

Compiled by Ellen Kuhl, this collection of real textbook chapters gives students the opportunity to practice reading the kind of material they'll be assigned in their other college courses. Each sample chapter (from textbooks on business, psychology, mass communication, biology, and history) is reprinted in its entirety and comes with comprehension questions and tips for reading success.
