Editorial Reviews

Review

"This is an excellent textbook for undergraduate students and would make for an excellent course. It could also be used as supplemental text for abnormal psychology for the discussion of assessment tools, an area to which most undergraduate students do not get adequate exposure. Strongly recommended!" (Doody's, November 2010)

I bought this book for my Cell biology class.

There are no links to the chapters in the table of contents so you must try to scroll to the right page and same thing for the index in the back.

This book is an excellent depiction of concepts and effectively communicates through examples.

If you need this book for class, but don't want to pay the full price for it. Search for the ISBN 978-0470505762. Or click here :

http://www.amazon.com/Cell-Biology-Gerald-Karp/dp/0470505761/ref=ntt_at_ep_dpt_3

This is the international edition of the same book. The only differences, it is paperback cover and the cover is different. The inside content is EXACTLY the same.

Hope things helps.

Good book. It has more information than you will be able to digest. It does not guarantee you an A in the class or even a C. It was just too expensive and they dont give you the answers to the super complicated questions at the end of each chapter!
It is more like an encyclopedia of cell biology. It is not very student friendly. This is more like for a grad student class where you already know all these concepts and just need a quick refresher.
My professor idolizes the book author and all the scientists that won the nobel for comming up with these concepts, but that does not help me understand the material.

Book author: Please write more clear and with less jargon. I am an undergrad for god sakes! Im not a cell biologist or biochemist yet.
Pictures are nice but the professor did not tested us on the pictures. My class exams were more like 6 multiple chioce(very hard and the professor never took responsibility for correcting his wrong answers!) 4 short answer questions, and 4 big essay questions that were 2 pages long each and you had to answer them all.

If I were a newby on this, I would just buy the older edition for a buck and use it instead.
Good luck on cell bio, will be the hardest bio class you will ever take!

Surprisingly well written and easy to read. Save yourself from the outrageous cost of new books, and get the old edition. While new discoveries are always being made, it shouldn't make a difference for school. By the time you need this book, you should be far enough along the way to be required to use peer reviewed articles for new developments anyway.

An excellent text. I am not a college student, rather a layman with a curiosity about structure & function at the cellular level. This allowed me to purchase an older edition for my own entertainment at a deeply discounted price. It was well worth the investment.

the real book is way easier to use, unless weight or space is your main concern. No link to the table of contents. You have to go to the front page and scroll through to it, Graphics are good but it makes page loads very slow, so paging through looking for something takes forever. There are no links to the chapters in the table of contents so you must try to scroll to the right page and same thing for the index in the back. Also they will not let you view the books from the kindle web browser or my iPhone, only a kindle or my table, which greatly reduced it's usefulness. Ebooks should be better than paperbooks, they have the opportunity. But I have yet to find a single one that I was satisfied with and this one is no different. Its just a really big, slow to load pdf file.

Again, Amazon never fails me. I love the price and the shiping was very very fast. However, Cell Bio is a extremely hard topic and this book makes it even harder because it contains too much information, and i dont feel the need to read the whole book. And Those who gave low score on this book mostly is because of the content of the book not the price or the shipping.
