Every household should have a copy of this book, particularly if the family includes teens or twenties. All those skills that give us pause for thought, though we are supposed to know them, are gathered here in one large paperback - how to give a presentation, to use a spreadsheet, to write an essay, to do an exam, to prepare a CV - oh! lots of fiddly and important skills. This volume has some focussed biology in it, but there are others in the series that might be more relevant if you are not interested in biology.

This book is required for the Biology course that I'm doing. I haven't used it much but when I have it is clearly laid out and logical. Very good tool for study.

Only bought this as it was a compulsory read for an Open University residential school I was enrolled for. Pitched at a low level, not value for money. I didn't learn much and the same amount of info could have been put in a much smaller and cheaper book, in paperback format.

Excellent reference book for anybody working in a technical capacity in biological sciences, or for anyone looking to brush up their lab skills, or remind themselves of techniques. Has come in useful more times than I can count.
