Introduction

Never read the Robot Series novels? No problem. These courses provide an excellent opportunity to gain easy exposure to the entire series without reading the novels. Although, we do hope you will enjoy Asimov’s Robot Series and wish to immerse yourself in the books. The Asimov Robot College provides an easy introductory approach to the science fiction novels that feature the Robot series as created by author Isaac Asimov, and continued through works approved by the Asimov estate.

Begin with an overview of the series with ARC 101 – Asimov Robot Series Overview, and then work your way through his short stories and novels. Twenty-five multiple-choice, true or false and fill-in-the-blank questions with a list of references for researching the answers make the courses user-friendly.
