very difficult book, how can high schoolers understand this
I think I know sufficient high school chemistry and biochemistry being over 25 years in the business of biology physiology and medicine. I got in contact with this book, when my daughter in 9th grade had to read about molecules. This chapter is totally confusing with alkanes without explaining alcanes, sugars without explaining what a sugar is, polysugars without discerning why they are different, polyalcohols withot explaining what an alcohol is, fatty acids and then suddenly sex hormones and the casual existence of the double helix. This is the most confusing book I ever held in my hands. This book is neither useful as base line text nor to review specific biologic functions down to the molecular level. I would consider this at most as waste of paper.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
