What could be better than the bestselling Schaum's Outline series? For students looking for a quick nuts-and-bolts overview, it would have to be Schaum's Easy Outline series. Every book in this series is a pared-down, simplified, and tightly focused version of its predecessor. With an emphasis on clarity and brevity, each new title features a streamlined and updated format and the absolute essence of the subject, presented in a concise and readily understandable form.

Graphic elements such as sidebars, reader-alert icons, and boxed highlights stress selected points from the text, illuminate keys to learning, and give students quick pointers to the essentials.

  • Designed to appeal to underprepared students and readers turned off by dense text
  • Cartoons, sidebars, icons, and other graphic pointers get the material across fast
  • Concise text focuses on the essence of the subject
  • Deliver expert help from teachers who are authorities in their fields
  • Perfect for last-minute test preparation
  • So small and light that they fit in a backpack!
