Best Cell Biology Book Ever  August 26, 2010

I was amazed at the depth of this cell biology textbook. The chapters are well written, the graphics and information are presented in a way that I was able to understand all concepts and I know consider myself an expert at cell biology. Great read for a textbook

Essential Cell Biology: 4 out of 5 stars based on 2 user reviews.


Essential Cell Biologyprovides an accessible introduction to the fundamental concepts of cell biology. Its lively writing and exceptional illustrations make it the ideal textbook for a first course in cell and molecular biology. The text and figures are easy-to-follow, accurate, clear, and engaging for the introductory student. Molecular detail has been kept to a minimum in order to provide the reader with a cohesive, conceptual framework of the basic science that underlies our current understanding of biology. The Third Edition is thoroughly updated scientifically, yet maintains the academic level and size of the previous edition. The book is accompanied by a Media DVD-ROM with over 130 animations and videos, all the figures from the book, and a new self-test quizzing feature for students.
