Tough subject for a lot of people but this was an excellent resource for the Human Biology class I was required to take. I didn't buy this book and only rented it through Amazon textbook rentals. But this was a great book and I used it often in my class. If this were my field of study and I needed to keep a book like this as a reference book, I would have absolutely purchased this book. For any middle-school, high school, or college kids that need a book on Human Biology for their science requirement, I think this would be a great book to learn from. If your assigned textbook isn't cutting it, it may be in your best interest to rent this, buy it used, or even invest into it for your college requirement. This book was truly the life-saver for this class for me--it was a required course and I'm not a fan of science or science classes. If you are doing a Biology with a LAB requirement and chose HUMAN BIOLOGY, this book will be PERFECT and NON-INTIMIDATING. I was very happy with this textbook and was so grateful it was made into a book with plenty of illustrations, keynotes, and bold print so I knew what to concentrate on. The way the book is structured breaks it down into different Body Systems, and thus it's even easier to process. The BIOLOGY WITH LAB REQUIREMENT course was a big scary monster in my head, and this book made all the difference in how well I ended up doing to the class. If I needed a permanent reference book on Human Biology, this is a great overview book and it's entirely comprehensive.
Though this is exactly what I needed for my class, this is not great for beginners. I'm not sure if that's because of my teacher, or the demands of the online class, but this book is incredibly dense and hard to comprehend.You certainly have to be ready for it. If your teacher is requiring that you use this book, and you don't have a prior background in biology or anatomy, I would recommend taking the course with a different instructor. The chapter introductions are always deceptively interesting as they relate to current events, but the remaining chapter material goes over my head except with the highest levels of application. This is hard stuff, but still relevant nonetheless.
Perfectly fine book. Just didn't like that it was said to be delivered to my front door an it was in my mailbox.. way after the mail.normaly runs around 12:30pm-1pm.. it got there maybe around 2:30 maybe 3 since the kids where out of school...had to walk all the way down to my neibors because they normally get our stuff.
I have used this for practicing chapters that I had trouble with. I received an "A" in the class. Yes, it works only if you practice. This is what I did ! I had a sheet of paper handy. I went over a chapter to review to see how much I retained. Trust me it took several sheets to get it but I did finally. I do recommend only for the students who go the extra mile in their education. Sincerely, RN4LIFE 2016
The author and the book are great ! The publishing company not so great. I contacted the author Michael Johnson, asking for help because i was struggling both financially and academically and wanted access to some of the online study help. He responded to me immediately and informed me that he had contacted the publishing company and that they would be in touch with me and that he would help in any other way he could in the meantime. they refused he stayed in touch through my finals.
The front cover was folded like shown in the picture..I just rented it, so I hope I won't be responsible with the damage part.
Seemed like a high school textbook
Mine came with an acccess code. I already knew the material so I didn't read it or bother with it, but the pictures looked nice. I bought this edition instead of the newer one because I knew I was going to get an A anyway. The books are the same.
