Biology sets the standard for clear, accessible writing and content that engages every student at every learning level. A new focus on the Big Ideas of biology sets the stage for active inquiry and participation. In addition, there is built-in reading support that helps students master concepts. Biology has visual and interactive overviews of complex processes, which aid understanding, add realism and interest, and provide students with a visual link to the narrative. Students read, see, and ultimately understand the fundamentals of biology.
The content in this "textbook" is amazing for what you pay the price for. I needed a good catch up on biology and this did the trick. Easy to read, and the questions on this subject aren't too shabby! A great read and a great price!
Need to check facts
Great idea, great presentation. I only downloaded the sample to see what the book had to offer. The download was of Chapter 8. I read through Section 1 and took the summary quiz. Three or four of the questions were wrong in that I'd select the correct answer and the "book" said the answer was wrong. Then, when selecting a wrong answer, the "book" identified that as the right answer. I really think this needs to be fixed.
I feel the material is awesome and the interaction is great. But the answers to the sample and possibly the full textbook need to be checked. Some answers are NOT right.
