    GREAT FOR THE BASICS

    I love the illustrations in this book and that it has explainations. It is easy to follow and I can reference something quickly. The only bad thing I can say is that I want more! I feel like I read over the entire book in a few minutes. It's great with a biology course because it is just the basics and it has great diagrams to go along with assigned reading.
