ABOUT BLUESTOCKING GUIDES
Bluestocking Guides are designed to reinforce and enhance a student's understanding and retention of the subject matter presented in the guide's corresponding primer.
Each Bluestocking Guide includes comprehension questions relating to specific chapters within the primer. These include: Definition, True/False, and Short Answer/Fill-in questions.
Application Exercises are also given for certain chapters. Generally, these ask the student to apply the knowledge he/she learned from a given chapter of the primer to "real world" situations. This way the student may personalize the information to better retain and apply the knowledge gained from the primer.
Many Bluestocking Guides will also include suggestions for further study (books, movies, etc.).
A final exam is included and answers are located in the back of the study guide.

We carry the entire line of Uncle Eric books and they have repeatedly been best sellers. Capitalism for Kids has also sold very well. Thank you for writing the study guides. I used the Uncle Eric books with your study guides as a year of Math for my my girls. They loved it and so did I! We all learned a great deal. One of the things I have seen in here in the store is that parents are buying these books not just for their students, but also for themselves. For many, it is their first introduction to economics and for most, it is their first encounter with the truth about economics. Thanks again and keep up the great work!
