Very good for cell biology, but I need to study a little more molecular biology, and when I do then I'll be able to take advantage of a fairly well covered handling of that topic.

not bad at all
The book came in tip top condition. Better than I expected. Delivery took a little while though. Could definitely be faster.

The book is well written and was chosen by a professor. He will not errors in the book though. Small careless mistakes are found throughout various diagrams. Other than that the book is a great resource and good prepatory material for any Med/Dent/Pharm student.
