Good book  November 4, 2011

I used this book for a Biology class at University of Iowa, and it worked just fine. I would recommend this book to anybody who's interested in biology. This text was helpful to me, so it should be to you too!

Inquiry into Life: 4 out of 5 stars based on 1 user reviews.
