"...after taking the HESI exam twice and scoring poorly on the math section, I was about ready to give up on my lifelong goal and pursue something else. I bought Davis's Basic Math Review for Nurses, spent between one and three hours a day, four days a week for about a month working through it. The very next time I sat for the exam my math scores improved tremendously. I just learned that I was accepted into my top pick nursing program. Thanks!"--J. Cole absolutely what I needed! "I bought this two weeks before my [ATI] TEAS [Test of Essential Academic Skills] test. The instructions and examples are great and easy to follow. There are a lot of practice pages with tests at the end of each chapter to test your knowledge. I took the TEAS test and completely tested out of math! This coming from someone who didn't even remember how to do fractions! Everyone studying for their TEAS should buy this book!!"--Amanda G.

Schemas are major knowledge structures influencing the way people acquire and store information. Sandra Marshall explores a new theory of schema development and studies the applicability of the theory as a unified basis for understanding learning, instruction, and assessment. The theory's prescriptions for teaching are direct, and its application to assessment suggests new directions for tests. After examining the roots of the theory in earlier work by philosophers and psychologists, the author illustrates the main features of her theory with experimental evidence from students who are learning to recognize and solve arithmetic story problems. She describes individual performance with traditional empirical studies as well as computer simulation. The computer simulation reflects a new approach in modeling cognition. Marshall's model links neural networks with symbolic systems to form a hybrid model that uses pattern matching of sets of features as well as logical step-by-step rules. Educational researchers and psychologists as well as curriculum developers will be interested in the new approaches of this work.
