    LOVE IT

    im in ap bio as a senior in highschool and this is my lifeline. The class and book go through lessons in the same order and studying is so simple with it. All i have to do is read through the chapter in cliffnotes and im good to go, because it covers everything i learn in class. If you're debating whether to get this or not...stop. just get it, it's definitely worth it.
