Summary

Biologyis a comprehensive introductory biology textbook for non-majors or mixed-majors courses that covers biology in a traditional order from the structure and function of the cell to the organization of the biosphere. The book, which centers on the evolution and diversity of organisms, is appropriate for a one- or two-semester course...It's no wonder that Sylvia Mader'sBiologycontinues to be a text that's appreciated as much by instructors as it is by the students who use it. The ninth edition is the epitome of Mader's expertise: Its concise, precise writing uses an economy of words to present the material as succinctly and clearly as possible, thereby enabling students -- even non-majors -- to understand the concepts without necessarily asking the instructor to explain further. .

This book helped me the most compared to anything else in my bio class. It was a very vital piece to my understanding the class. The main reason I would suggest this book is the cheap price. I could not find any book with the price this book has. The rest were crazy expensive.
