The idea here is that once you learn generically how a tool is used, you can then use that tool in any number of situations. The reason you can do this is because you use the tool the same way in each situation. Take a Crescent wrench, for example. Generically speaking, you use a Crescent wrench to fasten and unfasten a nut to a bolt.

Instead, they focus on providing core, foundational knowledge in a way that is easy to understand and that will properly ground you in the topic. This practical approach provides you with a smooth learning curve and helps you to begin to solve your real-world problems immediately.

The software-independent approach taken in most books within the Series also teaches the concepts in such a way that they can be applied to whatever particular application or system you may need to use.
