This book will provide you with a wealth of information about the three segments of the CSWP CORE exam. The intended audience for this book is a person who has passed the CSWA exam and who has eight or more months of SOLIDWORKS training and usage. This guide is not intended to teach you how to use SOLIDWORKS, but is written to provide you with CSWP exam tips, hints and information on sample questions and categories that are aligned with the exam. This guide is written to help you take and pass the CSWP exam. The book is organized into three chapters. Each chapter is focused on a segment of the CSWP CORE exam. This is not intended to be a step-by-step book. Goals of this book The primary goal is not only to help you pass the CSWP CORE exam, but also to ensure that you understand and comprehend the concepts and implementation details of the process. The second goal is to provide the most comprehensive coverage of CSWP CORE exam related topics available, without too much coverage of topics not on the exam. The third and ultimate goal is to get you from where you are today to the point that you can confidently pass all three segments of the CSWP CORE exam. Who this book is for The intended audience for this book and the CSWP exam is a person who has passed the CSWA exam and who has eight or more months of SOLIDWORKS training and usage. However, passing the CSWA exam is not a prerequisite for taking the CSWP exam if you are a commercial user in industry.

Rick and William Ayers renew their challenge to teachers to teach initiative, to teach imagination, to “teach the taboo” in the new edition of this bestseller. Drawing from a lifetime of deep commitment to students, teaching, and social justice, the authors update their powerful critique of schooling and present classroom stories of everyday teachers grappling with many of today’s hotly debated issues. They invite educators to live a teaching life of questioning—to imagine classrooms where every established and received bit of wisdom, common sense, orthodoxy, and dogma is open for examination, interrogation, and rethinking. Teaching the Taboo, Second Edition is an insightful guide to effective pedagogy and essential reading for anyone looking to evolve as an educator. What’s new for the second edition of Teaching the Taboo! A deeper exploration of issues of white privilege and racism and war and peace. A more thorough examination of the problems with math and science education, including possible solutions. An expanded exploration of the importance of creative writing for validating individual and community experiences. A more thorough discussion of Freire’s work and comparison to the radical teaching projects of African American activists in the south during the Freedom Schools. An in-depth look at how students can be part of co-constructing historical narratives and analyses. An update on school struggles in Atlanta, Chicago, and Seattle. Praise for the first edition of Teaching the Taboo! “For those frustrated by the thrust of educational 'reform' this book provides what can be described as both a challenge and a set of alternatives.” —Education Review “Drawing from a lifetime of deep thinking about education and courageous commitment to precious students, Rick and William Ayers have given us a marvelous book. Their devastating critique of the pervasive market models in education and their powerful defense of democratic forms of imagination in schools are so badly needed in our present-day crisis!” —Cornel West, Princeton University “Teaching the Taboo is provocative, challenging, funny in places, wild but sensible enough to be useful, inspiring, and practical for educators who are working to negate the educational madness that is infecting the schools.” —Herb Kohl, author of 36 Children and Painting Chinese Rick Ayers is a university instructor and founder of the Communication Arts and Sciences small school at Berkeley High School, and teaches at the University of San Francisco. William Ayers is a school reform activist and a Distinguished Professor of Education and Senior University Scholar at the University of Illinois at Chicago.
