This is one of the most poorly written books out there. The illustrations are beautiful, but the text seems to be written by someone with little background in the subject. The layout is also all over the place. Some of the information the students are supposed to become familiar with is relegated to a one line caption under a photograph. I can't believe schools are actually using this book. My daughter's Science class suffered because of it. It is not a book a teacher can teach from unless she has solid knowledge in the field, something my child's teacher lacked, so you can imagine what the class was like!
Virtual schooling and now some Brick and Mortar schools, are going to "no text book" style courses. We were struggling with this subject & wanted a textbook to supplement her online science course, but this book is so poorly written, it was waste of money. It does not go into detail enough, does not follow her online course well enough to be of any help, and I could go on and on. I am so disappointed and angry that it was so expensive and she still needs something to get her through the rest of the year.
