Description : The first SAT guide for students with learning disabilities. For the growing number of students with learning disabilities who take the SAT each year, studying for the test is even more grueling than it is for traditional students. There is nothing on the market to prepare them for the SAT, and traditional manuals are inadequate both in content and presentation. LD SAT Study Guide is the first commercially available SAT preparation manual that prepares students with disabilities in general, and devotes specific attention and instruction to the more common disabilities, including dyslexia, ADD/ADHD, nonverbal learning disabilities, math disabilities, and visual or auditory processing disorders. As a free supplement to the book, readers will have access to a companion website that enables them to take several practice tests and receive subject-specific feedback that pinpoints their strengths and weaknesses. Students can then focus their preparation accordingly to maximize their overall SAT score.

Description : Geophysics operations in archaeology have become well known through exposure on television. However, the technique is presented as the action of specialists and something of a mystery, where people walk about with strange contraptions, and results appear from a computer. This is not the case, however. Some scientific knowledge is needed in order to understand how the machines work and what they detect but otherwise it is only necessary to know how to handle the instruments, how to survey a field and how to interpret the computer results. This book provides all the relevant information. It explains geophysics operations in archaeology, describes the science that gives the soil properties to measure and the means by which the instruments make their measurements. Dr John Oswin is in charge of the geophysics operation of the Bath and Camerton Archaeological Society and his work has recently been the subject of a television programme. He has taught many students how to use geophysical equipment.
