Product description


Appropriate for an introductory course as it speaks to a nonspecialized audience and does not require previous knowledge in area, explains concepts well. Rula Awwad-Rafferty, University of Idaho It has very good application to the studio culture, emphasizing design process, studio work habits, and visual and verbal presentation skills for beginning students. --Jihyun Song, Iowa State University<br /><br />"Yes I received the review copy & back pack access to Ms. Slotkis's book. I am very pleased with her approach, especially the way the material is organized and with the instructor tools. The power point slides are excellent, both in notes and photographs. And the instructor guide has the test bank plus excellent activities and queries for both the committed interior design major and the explorer. I think it would be a great adoption for the Principles of Interior Design course when it is offered next (Fall of 2013)."
