The Cognella team was very helpful throughout the book publishing process. The experienced team members were able to furnish us very detailed information about the entire process. They were able to anticipate our needs before we even knew we had needs. The communication was frequent and transparent. I felt very supported by this wonderful team.

My experience in publishing the second edition of Auditioning for Actor Training Programs with Cognella was nothing short of exceptional! The team at Cognella took to heart my suggestions regarding font, negative space, and illustrations for the new edition, and they provided me with valuable suggestions to improve the text as well. I truly appreciate the quick turnaround and the overall publishing experience. I’ve already recommended Cognella to two of my colleagues.

Every student I’ve talked to about Cognella Active Learning had said that they find it very useful. Last semester, the average on my first test was 77%. The average on the first exam this semester, using essentially the same test, was 83%. I have to attribute this to my students using Cognella Active Learning. They’ve shared with me that the practice quizzes let them know what to expect and the flashcards are a great review.

Outstanding support from start to finish, particularly from an academic press where authors are given a lot of flexibility and freedom. The finished product both internally and externally is equally similar to what one would expect from a competitive trade press.
