Inside each study guide, the reader will find every subject’s key concepts. Critical ideas are highlighted in bright, neon colors so they stand out. Definitions are explained to help the reader understand better. Fun mnemonics are given for memorable shortcuts, like PEDMAS for the order of operations in Math, although it does point out that it isn’t a foolproof method.
