There should be an "always reading" option.
I really, really, really like this book. As a person that finds science textbooks to be a little intimidating with all of the concepts. like woah science !! I find this book to be more my style. I like that the headings are in question format and there are also highlighted areas of importance. The best part of thid book are the pictures very nice and the questions that are randomly placed. I don't know anyone that reads a biology book like its a classic novel. Its a book you can snuggle up too.. ...more
Gosh, I hate this book. I borrowed it from a friend who, while studying, was so frustrated he stabbed the book multiple times with a letter opener. I don't blame him. I hated the class to. Such a drag and I constantly fell asleep. So glad it's behind me now!
Unlike most other standard first-year biology texts for majors, Freeman has a strong evolutionary approach that interconnects chapter material.
This is a very comprehensive book on biology. I found it very interesting and it refreshed my memory on a lot of topics.
Decent textbook on biology, but some detail and exhaustive explanations are lacking in the text and diagrams.
