Review of First Edition:
"It is beautifully illustrated, and contains many eye-catching photographs and large, colourful diagrams. The explanations are clear and interesting, often interspersed with a touch of dry humour. …a readable and enjoyable text.
This book will stimulate able students to pursue topics further, and will provide an excellent framework of understanding for those of more limited abilities."

This site was also the least expensive for this book, as other places are charging a lot more for it.
I would recommend this book to all.
I asked her for any A level general biology books, with excellent layouts, very clear to read, easily digestible, clear diagrams and without tiny writing all squashed in together.
She kindly brought me a very large selection which took me 2 hours to sift through!
This book was her number 1. choice out of the whole library section to buy from, and I certainly agreed with her.
When you are choosing an important book you are planning on spending many many hours studying with, its so important to find a book which you will enjoy using due to its amazing presentation from start to finish, even the out side edge is colour coded, so you can instantly find the section you are working for. Its all the added extras which they didn't have to do, non of the other books did this, but it adds to its user friendly approach.
This whole book is USER FRIENDLY, in every respect and more.
If you can make complex information look and read as though its easy to learn, then learning becomes far more achievable, productive and hopefully successful.
The contents page is very easy to read, and colour coded with the pages of that subject and the external pages of the book.
The subject headings are very clear and enlarged, important words or information are also in larger print than the rest of the text. Different easy to read fonts are used, which relaxes the eyes, and helps you to focus on the different information, ie, information of microscopic pictures, information regarding diagrams.Read more ›
It didn't really cover my A2 syllabus, whcih is a shame as I love the colourful pages, detailed explaination of key concepts and very concise and easy to understand text - particually very strong on the meiosis/mitosis concepts, which I felt wasn't covered very well in my exam board text book, and also the cardiac section is very good.
It was a very expensive textbook for me at the time as I only just started my AS biology when I bought it, however it paid off as I become much more confident in biology, had a wider knowledge of different concepts and it really did put me at an advantage over other students in the class and showed in my results!
A very good textbook, definitely well worth the money!
