# Why is this book so good?

The two common issues that I hear from students are:

1) They can’t do the questions in the textbook

OR

2) Their tests are way more difficult than what they studied!

...and the reason is for both of these is that the textbook teaches HOW to answer a question without explaining WHY and therefore students are missing a big piece of the puzzle. On top of this, it doesn't even contain questions which are similar to their tests!

When a students answers the basic textbook questions, he thinks he understands the topic even if he has no idea what is going on. By looking at the answers or the worked examples, he memorises how to answer the question – but he cannot answer worded questions very easily.

A worded question demands understanding, most other questions do not. This is why you’ll often have a student who proclaims he understands all the content but struggle with application questions.

This Workbook is designed help students understand how to solve questions and contains plenty of exam-style questions to prepare them for their tests. It contains multiple-choice, short-answer and extended-response questions (all based on real exams) so that the students practices problems which are relevant.

This means this is far superior to any textbook. Even failing students have used this Workbook to achieve an average of 70% or higher.
