Homeschooling Project May 1, 2010
Hi, I use this book to introduce biology to my kids (9 and 11 yrs) one afternoon a week. I make three copies of the plates, we spend time together colouring, while I read and ask questions regarding the information. The kids discuss and contemplate, ask questions, make faces.. Then we take our coloured copies and paste them onto coloured cardstock. It makes for great lapbooks. I don't care if it's highschool or collegiate level. It's just meant as an introduction and a way to spend time together. I give it 4 stars for the colouring book idea, well written and thoughtful paraphrasing, plus 1 star for me and all those visual thinkers that learn from this type of educational material.

I bought this book to suppliment the materials I present in my freshman HS Biology class. I already use the Botany and Zoology books in my Botany/Zoology course. The quality of the books is excellent. Specifically, the slides on Meiosis did a good job tracking each individual chromatid into its respective gamete. Perhaps the most useful is the slide that is depicted on the cover - the animal cell. Looking online for a decent animal cell depiction turns up some pretty sorry examples, far inferior to those found in this book. In addition to excellent drawings, the explanations that accompany each are very good.
I highly recomend this book to anyone studying or teaching Biology at any level.
great for undergraduate study Dec 4, 2008
I bought this book recently and I love it. I think this would be a great supplement to a General Biology course, but is too detailed for regular use in a high school biology course, with the exception of AP. I think it is a little too detailed for a high school bio class, although it covers everything that I was introduced to in my Bio 110 course.
A slight caution--many people may see the title and bright cover thinking this would be a 'fun' way to learn or a great 'fun' gift to someone interested in science. In reality, it's set up like a textbook. It's meant to be a serious aide to someone learning biology. In that sense, it's a great tool, but this isn't like the coloring books we used as kids! So don't be misled.
For those of you looking for a supplement to a high school class, perhaps the "Biology Coloring WORKBOOK" would be a better choice.
Great for reviewing Sep 7, 2008
I have purchased this book three times now. I buy it to give to students who want more, but have limited time or attention span. Some of the material is outdated, but for a first year book, it remains without peer.
