4.0 out of 5 stars Good Book, October 18, 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: 100 Science Words Every College Graduate Should Know (Paperback)
There are many interesting facts tucked deceptively within the pages of this small book. This is a great book for those that are interested in gaining concise knowledge in the science arena. Excellent for those that want to refresh their memory as well. Great book. Words that were not common when babyboomers were getting their education. The words are well explained and written to be understood by all. It is a great addition to any library -- home, work or school.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is Good, June 2, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Every college graduate should have this book. Myself being a college graduate has learned over the years that college did not
teach me everything I needed to know and there are times I would have to research things to learn about them. This book is a
good source to have in your kindle to review to learn new things.

I bought this as a gift; I am a scientist and knew all the words. But my nephew, to whom I gave it, was delighted. He's just starting college and is trying to widen his horizons.

The only bad thing about this book is you sadly wont be able to use every word in a daily conversation to show how smart you are. Perfectly chosen science words, if you figure out a good way to study and remember then you are good to go.

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent concept, diverse reference, September 5, 2012

This review is from: 100 Science Words Every College Graduate Should Know (Paperback)
I found this title while shopping for textbooks at the University store. An overview and summary of various terminologies provides a window into more broad topics in the sciences. As a college graduate I was familiar with many of these definitions, but none-the-less found the collection refreshing. This type of assemblage is best presented in a palpable compilation of 100 unrelated pieces, suitable for perusal in a single sitting. I would recommend this book as an intro or summary of scientific words and concepts. Anecdotal examples and illustrations reinforce definitions by providing applications and background of the various words, and their generic origins.

As a long-time user of The American Heritage Dictionary, Fourth Edition, I support this type of layout for concise review and stimulating exploration of the less frequently visited vocabulary of the sciences, with etymologies included! Five stars for a novel concept and well selected assortment of words.
