Re Sci Book
 
Most books are very basic and do not go indepth, which means they are good in the classroom, but not good for research!

i agree broadwaybaby but isn't it the point of it? to let us do our extra research? :confused: ...

Specifics
 
Most science books don't describe much. :(
Luckily, they have science books specifically made for certain projects. ;)
I have a good plant experiment book.
I will give you the name when I find out!

Uh uh
 
I don't think so, I am always having to use the internet instead of my textbook to find the information I need.

wisteria 10-27-2005 05:04 AM

i agree in my sc class we don't have sc textbooks because the old ones aren't part of what we are learning only a small porportion but books can be more reliable but not always up to date :eek: so in my class the teacher is our text book :eek: mine lectures us to death... and we do a lot of internet work...

Science books are useful
 
I feel that they are - it's just that you need to know what you want before you buy or borrow a book. Carefully examine its index to ensure that it has the information that you need. Ultimately, well written books will have very good in-depth information on a subject of interest.

to tell you the truth most kids hate reading facts I don't there're interesting however it's a bore... :o

Good Point Mad!
 
Good point Mad, the only problem is, many school distrects go for the most inexpensive books, which sometimes cheats students out of details needed. I did, however, find some good books, try logging on to [url]www.msscience.com[/url] Hope this helps! :)

Well to me science books prove to be endless hours of surprises, shocks and fun.

wisteria 11-27-2005 03:37 AM

I'll try it later it's late rally late got school tomorrow :eek: night everyone...

the grade level
 
Well, it depends on the grade level. If you are just reading out of the book in one grade, but then doing labs that can not be found in the book in a different grade, then it depends. I also thnk it has to do with how indepth the books are.
