    One of the best biology textbooks, reading through it is very easy and the language is pretty simple, I studied this in my first year of university and now years later I m going back to it for some basics.I highly recommend it.

    Biology is the scientific expression of our desire to know nature We are most likely to protect what we appreciate, and we are most likely to appreciate what we understand It took methan a year of almost daily reading to finish Campbell Biology It was time well spent I might not recommend anyone else to try a similar feat, but reading Campbell Biology from cover to cover definitely increased my understanding and appreciation of nature and science.Some parts such as the chemical for Biology is the scientific expression of our desire to know nature We are most likely to protect what we appreciate, and we are most likely to appreciate what we understand It took methan a year of almost daily reading to finish Campbell Biology It was time well spent I might not recommend anyone else to try a similar feat, but reading Campbell Biology from cover to cover definitely increased my understanding and appreciation of nature and science.Some parts such as the chemical formulas might not interest non students such as myself, but the book is full of interesting details and explanations of the world around and within us Science is full of beauty and discovering how our world works can be a surprisingly emotional experience.After 12 months of reading, I only have one question what am I going to do now with all this free time

    I wasn t going to review Biology by Neil A Campbell, because well1 It s ubiquitous.2 I studied from the sixth edition in high school for Biology AP and the eighth edition for first year Biology, and while I read it, there were definitely places I didn t because I didn t have to or didn t want to or I fell asleep or I briefly wanted a social life.3 Where the hell do I get off thinking I am expert enough to review a first year textbook about biology But then, I remembered 1 Until those fre I wasn t going to review Biology by Neil A Campbell, because well1 It s ubiquitous.2 I studied from the sixth edition in high school for Biology AP and the eighth edition for first year Biology, and while I read it, there were definitely places I didn t because I didn t have to or didn t want to or I fell asleep or I briefly wanted a social life.3 Where the hell do I get off thinking I am expert enough to review a first year textbook about biology But then, I remembered 1 Until those free source online textbooks gain user friendliness and traction against the capitalist beast that is the textbook system, it will remain ubiquitous And boy, is that rant about the abuses of the textbook business long, off topic, and totally for another day 2 That means I spent two years with it, and if nothing else learned via idea diffusion while my head rested on its glossy pages because I got an A grade average Idea diffusion is college student urban myth that is going to be proven any year now, just you wait and see 3 What else is education for than to teach you that you know nothing In short, I like it, actually Even if the prose gets unwieldy at times, and the layout gets overwhelming there s always a beautiful picture of a tentacly nautilus I can doodle into my notes or an interview with scientist who gets grants to give IQ tests to ants or something on the next page.Can t hurt to get in that mythical volumes edition though your back will probably thank me.Also my prickly second quarter Biology professor had a signed edition with him always That level of respect has got to mean something Rating 4.5 stars

    I m not one to review textbooks used for school on Goodreads, but this one is good enough for me to make an exception Though I didn t read the entire textbook, I did have to read about 75% of it for my college courses in General Biology I I was never bored while sifting through its hundreds of pages I learned a lot I m not one to review textbooks used for school on Goodreads, but this one is good enough for me to make an exception Though I didn t read the entire textbook, I did have to read about 75% of it for my college courses in General Biology I II I thoroughly enjoyed using this textbook for my Biology classes as well as for personal study and reference Each section is clear, concise, and, above all else, interesting I was never bored while sifting through its hundreds of pages I learned a lot from this textbook as well as from my excellent Biology professor and was able to take stellar notes from it As well, the illustrations, photographs, charts, and other accompanying graphics greatly enhanced the text and provided a means through which visual learners can thrive in lieu of hours of reading Were it not for this exceptionally well researched, brilliantly written textbook, I would have struggled to pass my Biology classes Thankfully, I was able to pass with flying colors because of this textbook If you re lucky enough to have a professor that utilizes this particular textbook in their class, you will not be disappointed
