”I absolutely loved Launchpad and how easy it was to navigate. I liked the LearningCurve assignments, and how if you didn't know the answer right away it gave you the option to read the page that the answer was on. Personally, I prefer online textbooks than in hand textbooks. I find them to be more convenient. I genuinely wish more classes used it. It made taking this class a lot easier!”

”The Launchpad program is amazing, I wish all my classes used similar programs. I really liked how each chapter is broken into sections, and those sections broken into smaller subsections. This not only made reading the chapters extremely easy, but also helped me stay organized with note taking. The learning curve exercises were my favorite part of launch pad. They really helped me memorize information, and if I happened to forget something it was easy to go back and re-read the section of the book it was in.”
