One of the advantages Costello Quest-based Learning has over other textbooks is the fact that we are actively involved in supporting the teachers who use our book. Not only do we welcome suggestions and ideas for improvement, but we will can respond very quickly to any ideas and will talk with you about putting them in the next edition. This means that your changes can be in place the next time you order. We welcome such suggestions and feedback for both the book and the software.

Please feel free to email us. We guarantee a personal response!
