Format: Paperback
Brilliant photography, logical arrangement of topics, outstanding illustrations, and well-written text combine to make this text an outstanding tool in the classroom, or as a resource. Features include: main ideas emphasized in boxes within text; challenging content written for easy comprehension; chapters introduced with clear objectives and concluded with detailed summary; information presented in logical flow; chapter assessment by essay, multiple-choice, and critical-thinking questions; detailed index and glossary.

11 of 12 people found the following review helpful By A. Aldousari on March 28, 2000
Format: Paperback
Mader's "Biology" makes every thing simple with its easy-to-understand language and figures. Great EM shots, summarized tables, and applied examples are a few of the several features of the book. Also, summaries at the end of each section and chapter make it easy to reveiw what you have read in a short time. In addition, I have to note that the book is very simple. i.e. College students may need more detailes, although this book is very useful to them!

I was very satisfied. Price of most textbooks are highway robbery so I was glad to find this one used for such a good price. I was worried it would in bad shape but it was clean and sound.

I was impressed with the speed of shipping and the quality of the book, barely looked used. I liked that it was cheap. I didn't like that it was heavy. All books are I suppose. I'd recommend this to all students who want a good price on a text book.
