We moved away from On Course for the same reasons as Emily cited. I am
using Saundra's book this semester, and we.are.loving.it. I'm having
students journal their responses to the end-of-chapter questions, and this
is working well.
It's a practical guide, and refreshingly inexpensive, as textbooks go. My
students purchased them and are actually marking them up! :)
