  1. Good for the visual learner. I bought this textbook for my biology class (yay, gen eds!) and I was expecting it to be boring. It was. But at least it wasn't as miserable or confusing as many other textbooks I had the misfortune of reading.As far as textbooks go, this one is great. It's about average page length and chapter length. The pages are fairly sturdy and don't wrinkle as easily as a normal book's pages do. It has a nice, clean layout with lots of graphs and charts to help the visual learner. The...

  2. This makes Biology interesting As an undergraduate, I dreaded taking Biology. Science was never my strong suit and frankly, it bored me. Using this textbook, I took an introductory Bio class (with lab) over the summer. I did well and I actually retained the information.

I always questioned why I should even bother with science or math when I would never use it out...
