…in addition to simply writing this book, I’ve given a lot of thoughts to its pedagogy-the art of teaching. I’ve designed my chapters to make them easier for you to study and to give you abundant opportunity to check whether you’ve understood what you read-to test yourself (as I advise my own students) before the instructor tests you.
Each chapter is broken down into short, digestible bits with a set of Expected Learning Outcomes at the beginning of each section, and self testing questions (Before You Go On) just a few pages later. There are also numerous self-testing questions in a Study Guide at the end of each chapter, in some of the figure legends, and the occasional Apply What you Know questions dispersed throughout each chapter.
