It says on the website “In order to get the most out of the video lessons, you will need to order the Hands-On Essays student handbook which contains key points, writing samples, assignments, tips for evaluating assignments, and more.”
Please note: The link on that page does not work, but you can click here to check out the student handbook. The print version is $16.99 and the Kindle version is $8.99. I would say, combined with the FREE video lessons, you get your money’s worth and then some!
