"The biggest issue with Intro to American government is that there is a lot of material to cover in a short amount of time. The GOVT text provides a concise breakdown of information that is very useful in an overloaded course such as this one."
"[GOVT's strengths are] straightforward coverage of key issues, it's easy to read, and there is not a lot of extraneous information. [It also includes a] nice use of current issues."
