Praise for the previous edition
From the reviews:
“Are you or your child interested in architecture? Is this a possible career choice? Whether just an interest or looking into architecture as a possible career, this book will be of interest to you. … [Mo Zell] does a great job of discussing what architecture really is, the tools used and what architects need to know (yes, you need to know algebra, geometry and calculus and you need to be good at drawing and creativity.) … While this is a paperback book with only about 140 pages, it sure packs a lot of useful information. When finished with this book, you will know if you are cut out for architecture or not!”
—Jo Dee Soles, Practical Homeschooling, November/December, 2008
