This textbook is an excellent study tool for the Praxis: Reading Across the Curriculum exam. It has definitions and ideas necessary to pass the test as well as plenty of resources for the classroom. If you have to buy this for a class, actually read through and keep it because you will need the information later on.
My daughter needed this book for a college class she was taking. It served the purpose and was also sold at a better price than other places we had searched. It was in very good condition and arrived quickly, both of which were a bonus.
