4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Scott M. Kruse on July 5, 2005
Format: Hardcover
Following years of producing excellent university-level texts, Tarbuck and Lutgens have prepared a fresh and robust high school text written to standards. Tasa's illustrations are prolific, current and well done. Geared for high school, this text is on par with Christopherson's Geosystems and Physical Geography texts used at the university level.

All 25 chapters in 7 Units (Earth's Materials, Sculpting Earth's Surface, Forces Within, Historical Geology, Oceanography, Meteorology and Astronomy) follow a consistent format: 1) CA Science Standards, 2) Discovery Channel Video Field Trip, 3) Chapter Preview, 4) Online web resources and 5) Inquiry-Activity for hands-on learning. Goals and objectives of each subsection of each chapter (88 in all) clearly lay out key concepts, vocabulary and reading strategy. Key concepts and new terms embedded in text are shown in bold. SI measuring units are used exclusively. The end of each chapter includes a sample laboratory, a Study Guide broken down by key concepts and vocabulary; Assessment and Understanding Concepts, Critical Thinking, Concepts in Action and Standardized Test Preparation.

The text has an added chapter 13A, California's Resources and Natural Hazards, to meet California Science Standards. Ancillary materials include: Test Bank CD, 22 x 28 cm transparencies covering the whole text, VHS & DVD Discovery Channel "Field Trips", a "GEODe: Earth Science CD" - reproducing most of the 800-page text. Excellent NSTA SciLinks and other web resources make the text web interactive.

Rocks are treated systematically using color, texture and composition. The treatment of soils is archaic and weak. Appendix I includes "World Soils" but only discusses 10 of the 13 soil orders.

It's a great book for High School Earth Science. It is an easy read and each chapter is outlined to easily absorbing information. Wonderful find. My daughter lost her book and I found this used one! So glad it was available for such a great price.
