I love this work book! I was really helpful come crunch study time for the AP exam. If you use it along with the newest text book edition it will also really help. good simple review for the exam also acts very similar to the actuall AP exam. I also help me in my AP class. If I didnt have time to read a chapter a night, I would read the summary in the work book. And before an exam on mulitple chapters instead of rereading 50+ pages and doing 75 odd questions to study, it was better to go over the summary in this book. then if you dont understand somethign go back to the text book and read that section over. The answers with explanations really help too. Highly reccomend this book for an AP bio class and for the AP bio test. ONly flaw is that doesnt really help if you dotn have the text book to go with it and that doesn't have as many diagrams as it should. OVerall fantastic resource!

As another reviewer mentioned, the best way to use this book is to read the chapter review in the prep book along with the text book. I sit there and flip through both books, mainly so I can look at the diagrams in the big textbook. Diagrams are truly what helps the material stick in my head, and unfortunately this test prep book is lacking in them. but it doesn't matter because the diagrams in the big textbook are truly amazing.

Anyway, I like the format of this prep book because it makes learning tiny facts and vocabulary words very easy. Its shaped like an outline, so its already organized for you (and very easy to make flashcards from).

The only reason I'm not giving this 5 stars is because of the practice exams. The first practice exam in the book is EXACTLY like the already released AP biology multiple choice exams. They just paraphrased and reworded the questions, but left exactly the same concepts. For example, on the first question they give u a graph and ask what the carrying capacity is. IN the official exam its 500 or something. IN the prep book, they changed the graph so its 800. SO my teacher let us take the released official exam in class. Then I went home and was practicing with this book, so the practice exam wasn't helpful. But, for some people who don't have access to the released multiple choice exam, it might not be a problem

As you can tell by the number of pages, this is not a very long book. Nevertheless, I think this is a very helpful introductory/general biology exam review book out there. It has a extremely good balance between conciseness and detail, and I think suits preparation when time is short. Plus you get about 40+ multiple choice questions ranging in difficulty (and depth) and a few free-response questions after each chapter, not to mention the full explanations to each of them, not just a letter like some prep books. To me the content, questions, and solutions really feel thought of and not whipped up randomly like in other prep books I seen. If your looking for a more comprehensive (but shorter than the textbook) book to use over a longer period I recommend the official study guide that accompanies the textbook.
For those taking the (revised) AP exam this book probably won't hurt (detail-wise) but a recent prep book will probably help more.

Excellent review tool. Written with the same clarity as the Campbell text.
Concisely written and well presented. Very happy with it.
