I have learned that one should not try to shove a 10 week course in to a 5 week time span!
i didn't finish the whole book, just the class. and i'm not giving it four stars b/c i really liked it. i believe it's a well written, fairly easy to understand text book and i would recommend it for a beginning bio student ( or for a teacher deciding what text to use for that matter).
This is my very confusing jargon-filled biology textbook... my teacher is so much better at explanation and application. Seriously, who bothers to write these things?
