This review is from: Campbell Biology (9th Edition) (Hardcover)
Let me start out by saying that this book is one to keep at home. It's huge, and something that you should avoid lugging around in a backpack. And with it's 1464 pages worth of information, this book is the best. Everything is written concisely, while going into extraordinary depth for an intro course. The chapters have lots of aesthetically pleasing diagrams and models, and the paper is good for highlighting and underlining. I love how the spine has a different finish from the glossy cover, after a few years pass the spine won't discolor (it's grey, coated fabric) and the front should look fine. The organization of the book is like all the other AP texts, starting with Chem, than Cells, etc... I just love this thing.
