Known for many years as Barronâ€Ã¢â€žÂ¢s Easy Way Series, the new editions of these popular self-teaching titles are now Barronâ€Ã¢â€žÂ¢s E-Z Series. Brand-new cover designs reflect all new page layouts, which feature extensive two-color treatment, a fresh, modern typeface, and more graphic material than everâ€Ã¢€Â charts, graphs, diagrams, instructive line illustrations, and where appropriate, amusing cartoons. Meanwhile, the quality of the booksâ€Ã¢â€žÂ¢ contents remains at least as high as ever. Barronâ€Ã¢â€žÂ¢s E-Z books are self-help manuals focused to improve studentsâ€Ã¢â€žÂ¢ grades in a wide variety of academic and practical subjects. For most subjects, the level of difficulty ranges between high school and college-101 standards. Although primarily designed as self-teaching manuals, these books are also preferred by many teachers as classroom supplementsâ€Ã¢€Âand for some courses, as main textbooks. E-Z books review their subjects in detail, and feature both short quizzes and longer tests with answers to help students gauge their learning progress. Subject heads and key phrases are set in a second color as an easy reference aid.

This heavily illustrated, self-teaching guide to ASLâ€Ã¢€ÂAmerican Sign Languageâ€Ã¢€Âis useful both for the deaf and for those men and women who teach or work among deaf people. E-Z American Sign Language presents ASLâ€Ã¢â€žÂ¢s 10 key grammatical rules and emphasizes the use of â€Ã…“facial grammarâ€Ã‚ as an important supplement to manual signing. Most of the bookâ€Ã¢â€žÂ¢s content takes the form of a presentation of more than 800 captioned line drawings that illustrate signs for their equivalent words and then show how to combine signs in order to communicate detailed statements.
