Review:

"[MindTap] is student-friendly. There are different ways that students can find the subject matter engaging by catering to their learning preference styles. It is content-driven. There is a host of information which is well laid out and brings about a higher level of understanding, which encourages time for reflection and application, which is an ongoing process throughout the textbook."

"Customizing [MindTap] to only include what I want is a huge thing to me. Too many programs contain so much that I never use. It is confusing for the students and they often get lost in the material. I like all the attempts of engagement that have been included. Lots of opportunities for students to reflect and answer questions."
