I had to get this book for a class. There are some good ideas in it, but the authors expect you to perform every experiment in it, and if you don't, you "miss out" on many of their ideas. It seems a little ridiculous -- one chapter is over 100 pages long and there are a TON of experiments in that chapter alone that the authors refer to over and over again. I'm sorry, but I did not have the time to do those activities!!!

The textbook itself is great. But beware, the seller JASONY0716 is not a good seller!!!! DO NOY BUY from this seller. I did not have a good experience with him. I needed to return the book and he charged me $20, so I was unhappy about this so I left negative feedback. The only way I could get my money back in full is if I took down my feedback. This is how he gets such great reviews, because he harrasses the people who wrote negative ones to take it down. He is very rude and cannot be trusted.

My wife used this textbook while getting her Masters in Education. She seemed to enjoy the class.

I am using this book as a reference for a master's project I am working on in education. I have found the book to be very useful and helpful. However, I am deeply disturbed by a glaring error contained in the text. Martin briefly overviews the history of the process approach to science education near the beginning of the book. Since I am including a history in my project, I have paid careful attention to this section. He states, "In October, 1959, the United States felt deeply humiliated by the launching of the Soviet spaceship, Sputnik" (p. 16). This event occurred on October 4, 1957! He goes on to say that the Woods Hole Conference took place one month earlier. In reality, Woods Hole took place in September of 1959, nearly two years later (Bruner, 1960). These mistakes almost discredit the entire book for me. Let's hope that the new 1999 edition corrects these errors.
