Summary

The authors demonstrate the importance of translating coherent thinking into coherent grammar, and then offer help in punctuation, vocabulary building, effective expression, and writing style. Over the years, Barron's popular and widely used Easy Way books have proven themselves to be accessible self-teaching manuals. They have also found their way into many classrooms as valuable and easy-to-use textbook supplements. The titles cover a wide variety of practical and academic topics, presenting fundamental subject matter so that it can be clearly understood and providing a foundation for more advanced study. Easy Way books fulfill many purposes: they help students improve their grades, serve as good test preparation review books, and provide readers working outside classroom settings with practical information on subjects that relate to their occupations and careers. All new Easy Way editions feature type in two colors, the second color used to highlight important study points and topic heads.
