Default 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!

Thumbs up 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!

Default 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.

Lightbulb

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 so in my class the teacher is our text book mine lectures us to death... and we do a lot of internet work...

Default 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.

Post 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!
