5.0 étoiles sur 5 Learning biology in a few weeks has never been easier 11 février 2006
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur
I purchased this book awhile back and I can honestly say that after extensive review I am extremely satisfied with the knowledge I have gained from this book. I am a premedical student and aspiring doctor and I will be working on my BS in biology soon. This book teaches you the basics and solidifies your understand in common everyday language and even illustrates these hard to grasp concepts for easier understanding. Once you have mastered the first few chapters of this book simply by reading them and taking the end of chapter quizzes, you will have a strong understanding of the principles of biology.

As a matter of fact, when I first got this book I knew very little on biology. I read the first 5 chapters of this book (roughly 100 pages or so) and I aced three college level biology exams based only on the knowledge I obtained from Biology Demystified. This is an excellent study guide and it has really helped me to understand the easier concepts so I can relate them to the harder ones. Rule of thumb: Something is only hard if you don't understand it. Biology Demystified will teach you everything you need to know to get started with biology: Case closed!

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Pretty good choice 6 juillet 2009
Par Ape Linkin - Publié sur
This book is a pretty good choice if you need a refresher. As stated above, the illustrations could have been better, but they're not bad. The main thing that bugged me was the fact that there is no glossary. Yes, the book has definitions written into it, but it has no glossary. Sometimes you may want a more thorough definition. It's not that big of a deal, it's only inconvienent. You will be able to cover multiple chapters in a day and have an understanding of all of it. The writing style used makes learning easy, very easy. I only rented it from the library and I was able to finish it before it was due. Hope this helps.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 very well written and easy to follow 12 juillet 2004
Par Un client - Publié sur
Excellent book! I found it to be very easy to follow. The author really has a grasp on the subject matter and presents it so clearly. I would definitely recommend this book for any level of student be it high school or college. This book is far superior to any major text that can be very dry and boring. The author makes learning fun.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Too many errors 30 novembre 2012
Par Laurelyn Graywryte - Publié sur
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
I purchased the "Biology Demystified" Book to help in my studies. In going through the book I encountered at least seven scientific inaccuracies or self-contradictions. Usually these contradictions occur between the text and the quizzes or tests.
For example, on page 381 question #88 the test asks, "Literally, this Class is for the birds". The correct multiple choice answer should be "A. Aves". Instead, according to the book the correct answer is "C. Agnatha".
The Agnatha is the subphylum of jawless fishes (found on page 196). Obviously, then this is an error in the book.
Because there are so many errors, it makes it difficult to rely solely on the book for information. However, as a supplemental source this book would be fine as long as you are aware of the mistakes.
The inaccuracies I encountered are listed below.
1. Page 136, Question #4: Incomplete sentence.
2. Page 88, Question #3: Inaccurate definition.
The difference between Prokaryotic and Eukaryotic cells is the presence or lack of membrane-bound organelles.
3. Page 125, paragraph 2 & page 135, Question #2: Self-contradiction.
4. Page 135: Inaccurate fact. The main source of infections are still bacterial rather than fungal (I asked a Doctor.).
5. Page 152 & Page 158, Question #9: Self-contradiction.
6. Page 33 & Page 370, Question #26: Self-contradiction and unclear question. Technically both Francesco Reid and Louis Pasteur threw doubt on the former Theory of Spontaneous Generation.
Error number seven I used as an example.
Personally I was disappointed with the book having so many serious errors in it. If they fix the errors, then this book would be really good. But right now, you have to take it with a tablespoon of salt.
I hope this information helps for those who are considering or have already purchased this book.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Great Book! 16 février 2006
Par Lynn Ellingwood - Publié sur
I am an ESOL teacher and I have to be able to assist students with many different courses, Kindergarten - 12th grade. I used this book and plan to use others in the series to bone up on some subjects that I haven't taken for years. Biology Demystified was very helpful to me and the concept of biological order and disorder helped me understand a lot more about Biology.
