In normally spending 2.99 per chapter for the audio notes, one might expect a verbatim, or at least, well-summarized chapter. Vangonotes provided neither. The first half of the audio, totally about 11-12 minutes, was a fast run through of the chapter, often skipping several pages in the process . The second and third section is a collection of review questions with answers. The entire thing would have been far better provided as a simple audio cliff note collection for the booklet at hand. As it stands, it comes off as a mediocre-quality instructional substitute, one that I believe most would feel cheated by paying actual money for. Suffice to say, I would not recommend this to students or teachers. Simply reading the review section at the end of each chapter would be a better use of your time, and would provide a far greater wealth of information.

Wish I would have come to this website sooner
I am taking an ed pysch class online and I wish I would have come to this website sooner. I am a Dean's List student, but have found myself struggling with my online classes as of late (I'm taking three). I downloaded the free chapter that is available on this website. When you listen to the download, there is a relatively short "lecture" (compared to actually being in a class) and then questions are asked to test your knowledge. This REALLY helps you out when you're taking an online course, because I feel that I'm missing out on that "in person" component of a regular class. I am convinced to buy the rest of the chapters from this book because there were questions asked during the question portion of this recording that were asked on the test I just had to take--questions that I got wrong. When you sit down and read a chapter all at once, it's a lot of information to digest. This really helps to point out the significant portions of the chapter. I can see how this would be sort of pointless if you were actually taking this class in person (unlike myself), but if you are taking an online class I personally feel that this would benefit you, as it has me.
(And by the way, if you are taking an online class, I recommend reading the chapter prior to listening to the recording; that way you have a little background on what's being discussed)
