Because of AB 705 in CA, and similar legislation in other states, classes that previously helped students to develop the skills necessary to be successful in transfer level courses are no longer widely available. This book, and the accompanying flash drive, will help students gain those skills.
Professor Scheg has included his audio (or video) teaching of each chapter similar to what you would receive in an online class without the need to attend classes or pay additional fees. Proceed at your own pace and take the chapter tests as often as necessary.
The flash drive, that contains the information that was previously used in the classroom, and for online teaching, is included with this purchase. The flash drive includes Microsoft Word study cards to print on printable templates and study cards that may be added to your Apple phone, iPod, iPad, or Android phone. There are also interactive puzzles that may be solved on your computer (supports most computer systems).
The flash drive also contains audible practice tests for every chapter so that students may hear the words which helps in their learning of the new word’s pronunciation. Students may take practice tests as often as they like to sharpen their skills.

About the Author:
Lawrence Scheg is a Reading Specialist currently teaching at Modesto Junior College. His Career started in 1973 as Reading instructor for Walter Panas High School in Shrub Oak, New York. He was a pioneer in creating District, State, and Federally funded reading labs for that high school.
In 1995, Professor Scheg began a career in teaching Reading at the community college level at Santa Barbara City College. He also taught at Allan Hancock College and Antelope Valley College before moving to Modest Junior College in the fall of 2000.
In addition to his community college instruction, Professor Scheg has taught for Chapman University in their Graduate level program. There he instructed aspiring teachers in how to implement the teaching of reading and study skills into virtually any curriculum – and at nearly any grade level.
Along with his career as a Reading instructor, Professor Scheg has taught Literature and Composition courses. In all of these areas, he noticed students having the same, or very similar, spelling problems. He decided to create workbooks that would take away a lot of the mystery and confusion of how to spell these often confusing words. One of his techniques is to provide the student with letter groupings of each word, both in the text (definitions page), and on the printable study cards (located on the flash drive). The popularity of his books and flash drive has been steadily increasing, and we are pleased to present this latest edition for the betterment of the communication skills of students everywhere - and in all walks of life.
