Overall a good book and a good class.
The book introduces students to the essential principles of biology and how these principles apply in our daily lives. The content in this book is explained in a clear and concise manner which reduces confusion and simplifies the material to the readers. This book is divided into chapters, each chapter talks about a specific principle of biology and it is divided into subsections. Each subsection targets a different part of that precise principle. These subsections are put together in a way that simplifies and breaks down each principle to give you a clearer overall picture. Moreover, at the end of each chapter there’s a summary, multiple choice questions and essay questions, which help the readers reinforce what they have learned from each chapter. The summaries at the end of each chapter are well explained and capture the main ideas discussed in that chapter.
This book is affordable and not too pricey compared to other textbooks. Overall, I would highly recommend purchasing this book, it is easy to navigate through, simple and straight to the point. It has helped me gain a better understanding of the material I was learning in class, and it offered me a great alternative to teach myself when I felt like the information I was getting from my teacher was confusing or not sufficient.
