"This is an outstanding text with glossary, illustrations, and top scholarship, yet readable and enjoyable. I previously used the standard edition, but found that students did not read it as much as I expected. So I supplement the Brief Edition with outside readings online or in class. . . . I have used [Making America] for 5 years and have found nothing comparable."
"I find all the Investigating America features to be extremely worthwhile as they create a sense of empathy and enable the student to recognize historical events as more than dates and names, but rather as people who are making the best decisions possible under the circumstances they are in. The perspectives given in these features are invaluable!"

You honestly cant beat buying/renting a textbook on here, they even pay for the return shipping. I can honestly say maybe I opened this book four times in that 15 weeks because my professor din't have us use it much. But from what I did read this book puts everything in pretty easy to understand terms and highlights a lot of the main points and themes of the section on the sides of the pages. Would recommend!
