I ordered this book but WITH the lab codes and guess what? They did not work. If you need the lab codes for your class DO NOT buy from amazon, they are charging you for something that doesn't even work! The book was fine but I ordered it for the lab codes and was more than upset when I had to rebuy the codes for $50.

Whoever thought it was a good idea to make this thick book a softcover, I tell you: it was not. The shear weight of this book, combined with the thin, slippery cover, makes it difficult to hold onto the book. Additionally, for whatever reason, whenever I put this textbook into my messenger bag (a regular messenger bag, nothing special), it always ends up bent and wedged under my other books. It's hard to even pull it out because there's no friction. I try to keep my things nice, but this book was the only one in my possession with dog ears and crinkles after merely one semester of use.

Asides from the obvious issue, this book was very informational and to the point, and it explained difficult aspects of biology in such a simple, succinct manner that I learned more from it than I did in many of my previous textbooks. I know I might be unfair if there is a hardcover available, but if there is not, this book can be a hassle. Get the hardcover.

Good book that was easy to understand, but Mastering Biology was no included. I had to buy it on my own which I fully expected would happen when renting a used book.

As most college level Science books go ((at least for my area)) this one is largely cut and dry. While there are plenty of colorful images spread throughout the book, the author goes on and on and reading it gets really old, really fast. But most people are not going to be purchasing this book unless they are taking the course that goes along with it. Good luck reading it.

I bought this as an ebook for school, I read different opinions on some other options like the Cengage reader but the app on iOS was really crappy. I bought this as a kindle edition and I didn't realize that you can only open it on a macbook , I guess you can open it on a PC too. Other than that you need a kindle fire to open this book because it is a page by page scan or something like that. Which means you need to zoom and stuff like that, think of it as a PDF

I guess it's fine for school

So, it is a college bio 100 book. That is essentially all I can say about it.

It is in brand new condition
The price was $140 less than my school bookstore (the book store rental price was the price I paid for it here)

Only con would be that it is paperback. Whoever said "Lets cut corners and get this book made with a paper cover needs to be examined. With over 650 pages it needs something to keep it sturdy...

Over all: Great new book.

It was slightly more worn than the description made it out to be. Also it was not a regular soft cover book. It was bound with plastic rings. Overall it is still a good product but the binding did make it kind of hard to read/study.
