Further, I hope the previous reviewer didn't try too hard to learn molecular bio from this, because it's riddled with errors. Our prof told us to cross out a whole page of fueling diagrams because they were so wrong it was beyond saving. Another page shows glycolysis making ATP in the first step (that's way more awesome than that old-fashioned glycolysis cycle I learned last year in biochem!) Another page says reduction when it means oxidation. Another page miscategorizes Pseudomonas as a hydrogen bacteria. And that's all in chapter 6 alone! There are also constant grammar and punctuation errors, which are inexcusable and distracting, but not as scary as all the wrong info.
This thing is expensive and it isn't worth the money. The website is just links to external sites with papers and crude cartoons to explain concepts. These authors are making money hand over fist on rehashing basic concepts-welcome to college!
An average book that loses one star for costing way more than it needs to.
