This was purchased for my daughter for her AP Biology course. She liked the text so much she decided to keep it for future reference. Dealing with Amazon is always a pleasant experience. Fast ship, packaged nicely. Brand new book as stated. Thanks!

Format: Hardcover
As a former high school biology teacher, I taught primarily with two texts--this book and the more widely adopted "dragonfly" book created by Miller and Levine. In my opinion, this text is far superior to the more widely adopted one in every possible manner. The information in the Miller and Levine book was so watered down that the the text became vague and therefore more difficult to understand. This book, in some cases, might be a bit too detailed for a typical high school biology course (for example, see the sections on cellular respiration), but a decent teacher should be able to adjust as needed. I know I personally would prefer to have a text that is slightly too detailed for my students to refer to than one that is too vague.

I am somewhat surprised at the reviewer who said this was the required text for an AP Biology course her daughter took. I do not find this text anywhere near sufficiently detailed for an Advanced Placement course, but as noted above, it certainly seems more detailed than the most widely adopted book out there in the public school system for a regular biology course.

Well written and easy to understand. We use the text for a small class of homeschoolers. Received in good condition with hardly any marks& just gently worn
