Must Download!!

My professor is excellent. She covers all the material she expects you to know in lecture, but in sociology it's easy to get terms mixed-up with one another and, in this text in particular, the chapters can be VERY long. I suggest buying this audiocompanion for two reasons: 1) You can listen to it while driving, become familiar with the material (even before you start the chapter in class), and when you do get a chance to read, you're "reviewing;" and 2) At the end of each section there are three quizzes of 10 questions each which helps to immediately reenforce the material you just heard.

The chapters do not cover all of the material in the book by a long shot. The chapters in this audiobook are almost like a highlight of the end of chapter review section, that should inform you as to how condensed the material is, but many critical key concepts are covered and the quizzes at the end of each chapter cover material from the text that wasn't in the reading, so it's helpful in that respect as well.

If you want to hang on to that 4.0 (like me!) then I would definately suggest downloading this book.

VangoNotes for Society: The Basics

This audio textbook on Sociology has been very helpful for me to learn the key terms in the chapters. It has helped me to remember things when I take my tests that I probably would not have otherwise. There are a lot of terms to know and understand so to utilize more of my time to study with an audio textbook has been invaluable to me.
