We didn’t use this whole book for my summer class, but I’d say we used at least half of it. I remember taking Biology in high school vaguely, only really remembering that I didn’t like it all that much. Taking it now in college I can say that I do like it, most of it at least. And this book helped play a part in that. The text is full of pictures and diagrams; I learn best visually so these helped me immensely. The text is also full of jargon but the technical names are all explained. There are a few topics in the book that I needed additional supplement readings to understand but for the most part, the authors explained ideas in an easy to get manner. I’m sure I’ll be referring back to this book for years to come. ( )

Been a while since your last biology class but want to get back into the swing of things? This is a great reintroduction to the topic for anyone whose memory has faded a bit. ( )
