5.0 out of 5 stars What a great study aid for difficult subjects June 14, 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have had this book for over 6 months now, and I have to say why was I not informed that this book was in publish before I entered my senior year in college majoring in Biology and Chemistry. This book alone taught me more about subjects such as proteins, lipids, and carbohydrates that my entire first semester of Biochemistry did! Also the information is given as plain fact without all the "baggage" that traditional textbooks give you. I even used this book when tutoring a student in biology and how this aid was able to word the material was able to help him transition from a D student to a B student because of the quality of this material.

4.0 out of 5 stars Succinct and Thorough August 25, 2012
By Catsy22
Covers all the material you need to know for any general college Biology and I used it to study for the BIO GRE. Very helpful -- each chapter, and actually half the material, is covered in Question and Answer Format (paragraph form). I like having people quiz me while studying, so this type of format was great. I would recommend it over Kaplan's BIO GRE study guides.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very detailed book June 1, 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I got this to review an entire college career's worth of biology and study for the DAT. I have not gotten very far in this book, but it is a well-formatted bit of information. It's quite thorough as well, and if studied carefully, can provide a great review of an entire biology curriculum.

I went through my biology textbook (campbell) and the only difference is that Schuams is more consise and hte pictures are not as good. The material covered is the same as the textbook and the review book.
