Format: Paperback
Excellent. This book zeroes in on the essential issues of biology and explains them clearly. It doesn't shy away from the real stuff either--you can expect to learn the structure of DNA and RNA along with what they do in living beings. Great for people interested in the topic, or for students.

Appears to be concise and well organized unlike the other biology for dummies book. That one in my opinion is terrible. I took biology and anatomy and physiology in college and like and am good at these subjects. The regular biology for dummies book does not follow a logical sequential order and jumps around all over the place and includes a large amount of clutter rather than the essentials.

I'm an older student who just recently went back to school. The teacher was talking about stuff I had no idea about but pretended to look like I did. Fake it until you make it, and buy this book if you need help. Also ask the teacher for help because that's their job to make sure they teach it so you can understand it. If they don't help then you have this book and you will still pass your test and be awesome.

Format: Paperback
Some information is not necessary accurate. For example on page 65 "The carbon and oxygen for the sugars come from carbon dioxide...".
This gives the impression that oxygen comes from carbon dioxide in photosynthesis when it actually comes from water.

Otherwise, it is clear, but not in detail.

It covers almost all of what's required to pass the New York State regents exam in biology.
However, some areas were given a bit less explanation--the chemistry section, for example.
All in all, a good overview.
