Great Value for the Money!
I highly recommend this book!! It was a perfect fit for the Biology class without having to pay the hefty price at the school bookstore.

Biology: Concepts & Connections
Purchased this text because it was a mandatory text for my class. The book's chapters are relatively short and the material is quite interesting. The information is pretty condensed and it gets straight to the point. The book also has "connection" sections to make relevant connections to everyday situations. It has great diagrams and charts to illustrate the more complicated processes. Will definitely keep as a future reference.

Biology - Concepts & Connections
My international version is exactly the same as the 6th edition, the other cover is right inside. The accompanying online site, MyBiology.com, is extremely valuable in my studies. It has the complete text that you can highlight as you read, as well as pre-tests, post-tests and other exercises to test your learning. The book is wonderful, intereting, easy to understand, easy to read, great examples, illustrations and really packed with information. The questions throughout and at the end of the chapters are relevant and reinforce learning. Fantastic buy, fantastic value.

Everything is the same in this international edition as in the original. If you can get away by using an international edition, do it.
