Review:

"I think this series of videos will be a wonderful addition to the [Cornerstones] text. Today's generation of students appears to put much more emphasis on a 'visual' approach to learning, and this will help respond to that style."

"I understood the material better after reading Cornerstones. Cornerstones presents information the way it should be learned, in a logical manner. Neat, concise, and all facts are thoroughly explained."
