    Basic Review

    This book covers the basics and doesn't go over many details or exceptions. However, if taking a good (Honors) Biology course, this is good as a refresher to jog your memory. Honestly though, I used this book one year after it came out, and didn't finish reading it until one or two days before the exam, so its effectiveness is inconclusive. Even so, many of my teachers recommend Princeton Review for its clarity and simplicity over Kaplan and Peterson's in science and other subjects.
