Well written and simple language. Lots of graphics helped break up some dry material and enhanced learning. Good for a College Bio 101 course.

Great text. Access to the website allows for chapter outlines, pre and post tests, and even flashcards for each chapter. Easy read. A for the course.
It was very informational, and since I love Biology, it was one of my favorite non fiction books!
Taking as my Science requirement for Semester 1 of Vet Tech Associates Degree through Penn Foster.
