    I found that this book helped me understand the meanings of how to properly word sentence to clarify what I am writing about. The only thing it needs is a hard cover.

    This book was use to for effective my speaking class for English credits. Well described in defining the terms to better understand how to use those to write papers, essays and in general journal writings.

    This book was very helpful. Each section was specific and concise, terms were clearly defined and the language was direct. Each chapter featured specific examples to support the given information. What I really liked about this book was the summaries at the end of each chapter and review questions. It was easy to absorb and understand a lot of information.

    This book focused more on the material than the language. It was written directly, which is helpful when reading a textbook for a class.

    I never knew that giving a speech would be so much easier if we do a brainstorm, just like when you write a paper!

    So far, it was pretty accurate. I also had a wonderful professor who was helpful.

    This book is easier to comprehend. It breaks it down into easier concepts to understand.

    it was a public speaking class. It was a basic class that did not require a harder book.

    The most interesting thing I learned is how to speak to a specific audience and that making outlines of the speech, even though I thought it was super boring at the time, really helps.

    I thought it was fine the way it was presented. The chapters could be organized differently because my instructor has us do the group project first, then the informational speech. I think having students, who are afraid to speak in front of the class do the group speech first, helps when they have to get up in front of the class alone.

    If the chapters were shorter, if the print was larger and if the wording was not as dry, the book would be better. I found that I needed to read chapters in small segments because there is so much information in each chapter and the print is very small that I had to strain my eyes.

    The thing about the book that I would change is that the printed font needs to be bigger.

    It helped a great deal! I was afraid to speak in front of others. This book taught me techniques to conquer that.

    Oral communication - we had to give public speeches each week on random topics. I loved it!

    I learned how to speak in front of large groups. This taught me how to connect to my audience.

    This was a public speaking class. We wrote different speeches on different subjects from this book.

    More plain language and more modern examples to understand subject content.

    The online content was helpful, and so was chapter quiz questions.
