As an Open University student studying Geology and Plate Tectonics I bought Geoscience as a reference book and have found it an essential reference. It is a great help in additon to my set text books and explains the topics in plain English. I find explanations of complex topics much easier to understand in Geoscience. It has clear and concise text relating to all Earth Science topics and I really wouldn't be without it! A brilliant buy!
i was given the book at the begining of my As level geology course. i found it full of useful diagrams and pictures, and the explantaions were simple to understand, which also go into plenty detail. the book gave me all the information i needed. the question are also usful in testing your knowlegde of the subject. if you are studying geology i highly recommend it. It helped me get an A at as level and without it i would have struggled.
I was given this book to use in my Geology A-level. It is a good introduction to the subject but is wholly inadequate for use at A-level. It goes into very little detail - especially on Palaeontology but also on a lot else. The Petrology section was probably the most useful but still not detailed enough.
I hardly used the book and it is certainly not worth the ridiculous price it is retailing for.
