For students taking the Materials Science course . This book is also suitable for professionals seeking a guided inquiry approach to materials science.
This unique book is designed to serve as an active learning tool that uses carefully selected information and guided inquiry questions. Guided inquiry helps readers reach true understanding of concepts as they develop greater ownership over the material presented. First, background information or data is presented. Then, concept invention questions lead the students to construct their own understanding of the fundamental concepts represented. Finally, application questions provide the reader with practice in solving problems using the concepts that they have derived from their own valid conclusions.¿

This book is crap. The method of self-paced discussion and group-think is like the blind leading the blind. How are a group of students who know nothing about a topic supposed to teach each other about a topic none of them knows anything about? Professorial use of the book will certainly help, and students may not have a choice as to which book their teachers use for this course, but if there is a choice, avoid this method of learning and this book that follows it.
Not used to the workbook style in college.
