2.0 out of 5 stars Horrible "textbook", February 10, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I'm taking BSC 2010 at the University of Florida, and unfortunately, this textbook replaced the Campbell Biology textbook this year. I knew coming in that the course will be interesting, and fairly easy for me because I took AP Biology in High School and I still remember a fair number of the concepts. The one factor that I forgot to take into account is the possibility that we'd have a terrible textbook. There are a couple of reasons why this textbook is horrible for anyone who wants to learn about Biology; first, none of the concepts are explained very clearly. Second, the concepts aren't explained in enough detail. This forms the basis of a textbook that is too convoluted to actually be of any help for the BioPortal quizzes (which, if you're taking this course at UF, will be extremely annoying...trust me). Basically, it seems like the authors just wanted to throw together a Biology textbook for the heck of it, and see how much money they could make before people realized that there was a superior alternative (the Campbell textbook). I give this textbook 2 stars simply because it's about Biology.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good starter vape, October 20, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This vape is a good starter piece. The main issue with it is the fact that the temperature display is a little bit inaccurate, but considering the extremely low price, it's a solid vaporizer. The free grinder is also a lifesaver :)
