Format: Paperback
This workbook was recommended by the College Board for use with the revised AP Biology curriculum. I am using it primarily as a springboard for classroom discussions. Mostly this works well, but some of the questions are vague enough that all they elicit is some head scratching as I and my students try to figure out what the question is driving at. There are also a few typos which wouldn't usually be a big deal, but when they come in a chemical formula, they can cause some confusion. Overall, I find the book fairly good. It's a lot better than having nothing at all or trying to rely on my old workbooks from the old curriculum, but I'll continue looking for resources that might be better for next year.

Little use to biology student, exercises do not help the student focus on the key concepts.

I bought this for my high school senior. The instructor did not recommend this workbook, but my student was struggling and I wanted to give it a try. My senior did attempt a few work sheets, but could not understand the correlation between what was taught in class and the work sheets. At my insistence, my student took to work book to school and the instructor promptly advised my student to not use the workbook as from the instructor's experience, it requires following the material sequentially and only confuse students when instructors teach the material in a different format and the text book is used only as reference. The workbook now collects dust and I am glad it did not cost me a lot of money. I guess it really depends on the instructor's reccommendation as to whether this book would be useful to a particular student. The workbook appears meant to give students who already have a good grasp on the material better depth of knowledge and not meant to aid students who are having a hard time understanding the material.

As an AP Biology teacher for the past 8 years, I was concerned about finding interesting questions for my students that would be thought provoking and have them engage in problem-solving. This book, which coordinates well with the classroom textbook, Campbell's Biology 7th ed., is a wonderful resource for such questions.
