Created entirely by a "student-tested, faculty-approved" review process, COMP: READ is an engaging, rhetorically organized reader to accommodate the diverse learning styles of today's students at a value-based price. Each chapter of COMP: READ clearly defines the learning objectives for that chapter; it begins with a statement, photograph, and question to encourage critical thinking. Student-tested and faculty-approved Chapter Review Cards can be torn out of the text for easy review and study. A brief handbook with grammar, punctuation, and mechanics is included in the back of the text and online for students to find quick answers to their questions.
