3-0 out of 5 stars the new dust collector 3000!
my class was pretty comprehensive so i never found a need to use this book other than the required taking notes after each chapter.It's all good though.

3-0 out of 5 stars Good, but not quite right.
This book was well written, and has a good amount of visuals, which help a lot in understanding concepts in environmental science.
However good the book was, it didn't seem to reflect what was on the actual AP exam very well.
It claimed that pollution would be about 30% of the test, when really I only remember a handful questions on pollution. Also, not everything that was on the exam was covered.

So, it's good, but it didn't quite hit the mark for what the APES exam actually is and covers.

2-0 out of 5 stars There are Better Books Out There
This book has been very frustrating to read.I have found many errors, for example "life-life" (I think they meant half-life?), and many other typos.The content is too general.I know it's suppose to be a "review" book, but I feel like they could have built on ideas a little more.The review questions at the end of each chapter address things that either don't come up until the following chapters, or that don't even come up at all.In addition, some of the answers to the multiple choice questions are wrong!Overall, this book is not worth the money.My advice would be to go to the collegeboard webiste a purchase a more qualified review book there.

3-0 out of 5 stars Could be better could be worse
I am a tutor for AP Env. Sci.Some of the text is poorly written. Some of the practice questions don't even make sense.The review material doesn't touch on some of the practice questions.I don't know if any of the other review books are any better, but this one leaves a lot of room for improvement.Maybe next year's will be better.

The book is fairly well written. Gets to the point quickly, but I wish it was organized a little better. I heard that the 2006 version is a little better because it has more information. I guess the 2007 version was cut shorter to get to the point more. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars good value
This book was in great condition . I purchased it as a text book for my daughter and saved a bundle instead of purchasing it new. The condition was better than expected. The pages were like new with just a couple of frayed spots on the edge of the hard cover.

5-0 out of 5 stars A++ for the shipper!!
I have to give KUDOS to the company that shipped this book to me within a couple of days.

Not only was the book in great condition (as described), but this was one of the fastest transactions I have experienced in all my years with Amazon.

This rating is based entirely on the service provided from your company (as it should be).The contents of the text is beyond your control since you did not write the book; only SUPPLIED IT.

A text book supplier should not be graded upon what the book's author has written...that is an overkilling of the messenger and has no relevance whatsoever.

With that said, I am sure we will do a lot more business and keep up the good work!!!

Many thanks!!

1-0 out of 5 stars Liberal Propaganda
I was forced to purchase this book for a college class. It doesn't take long to find out this book was written to keep pushing the liberal agenda. This book is all about how humans have destroyed the earth already and how the earth would be better off without humans. Don't buy this book unless you want to read about how all biological problems are a direct result of human actions. This book is an example of how our school systems are infected with socialist, closed minded, left wing educators. I threw this book into the local landfill to one, keep this book out of circulation and two, to add to my "carbon footprint".


3-0 out of 5 stars Not bad or horrible, could of been better.
The book had scratches on the cover due to packaging according to seller.I thought shipping would of been faster, but at least I didn't wait the max time slated.As well, some pages were crinkled when first open, suppose to be brand new.Other then that, pretty good seller and book seems to be okay.

I purchased this book a few months ago, as a means of self studying for the AP Environmental Science exam. So far, this book has proved to be excellent in successfully learning the material, and emphasizes the everlasting dispute between science and values.I initially wanted to only take this test for some easy college credit; however, Environmental Science has now become a very interesting subject for me thanks to this amazing book.Through great pictures and maps, the reader can more thoroughly comprehend the material.I definately give this book 5 stars, as it is greatly written and has made me far more interested in the subject. ...

Product Description
Environmental issues affect every part of your life. ENVIRONMENTAL SCIENCE: WORKING WITH THE EARTH, Twelfth Edition, shows you how nature works, how we interact with it, and how we have sustained--and can continue to sustain--our relationship with the earth by applying nature?s lessons to our economies and individual lifestyles. This central theme of sustainability--the ability to adapt to changing environmental conditions--is clarified by an emphasis on natural capital (resources) and degradation, solutions, trade-offs, and the importance of individuals. If you have little or no science background, the book provides you with a solid grounding in the basics that will help you better understand environmental science concepts. Case studies--on topics ranging from the importance of insects to the reintroduction of wolves in Yellowstone Park to the world of nanotechnology--illustrate key topics and issues that affect your life. These cases inspire How Would You Vote? questions, which sharpen your critical thinking by asking you to consider facts, conflicting solutions, and trade-offs surrounding the issues, and then cast your vote.Multimedia resources offer other ways to learn. CengageNOW features Personalized Study Plans and interactive exercises and animations that help you master concepts. MP3 audio study tools can be included with your text at your instructor?s request, or can be purchased separately through www.iChapters.com. There?s an eBook too, which is available for purchase. ...

If you are taking a geology course with this book, drop it because the subject is boring and the book just spits a bunch of geology jargon that no reasonable person would give a **** about.

This reference is fine for the general reader who wishes to understand the basics of Environmental Geology, however, the information it contains can be found for a much less expensive cost at any online site or library.Much of the information covered is also a general topic of most high school geology courses, though it contains a good amount of information concerning human impact on natural processes.The writing style is concise, though not so dense as to defer all but the most determined reader.

Product Description
Environmental Science: A Global Concern, Eleventh Edition, is a comprehensive presentation of environmental science for non-science majors which emphasizes critical thinking, environmental responsibility, and global awareness. This book is intended for use in a one- or two-semester course in environmental science, human ecology, or environmental studies at the college or advanced placement high school level.

We have updated data throughout the chapters in this book. Information and examples presented are the most recent available as of the mid-2009. You will find an abundance of specific numbers and current events – details that are difficult to keep up-to-date in a textbook.

The goal of this book is to provide an up-to-date, introductory global view of essential themes in environmental science along with emphasis on details and case studies that will help students process and retain the general principles. Because most students who will use this book are freshman or sophomore non-science majors, the authors make the text readable and accessible without technical jargon or a presumption of prior science background. ...

Editorial Review

Product Description
Environmental Economics is the first text to concentrate solely on environmental economics--the problems of earth, air, and water pollution from an economic perspective--with an emphasis on both government regulation and private-sector anti-pollution incentives.

With the assumption that readers already have an understanding of intermediate microeconomics, the book reaches into more detail ontheory and analysis than most other textbooks in this area. Now fully revised in its second edition, Environmental Economics is divided into four primary sections: the first section defines the field of environmental economics in relation to general economics and to ecological and resource economics; the second section is normative, looking at market failure and asks why, even with apparent environmental protection, the market often fails to work properly; the third section is positive, examining government regulation of pollution using the industrial organization literature; and the final section covers more advanced topics, looking at risk, uncertainty, green accounting, international competition and cooperation and development.

Including many international examples, the book places special emphasis on the ways that countries around the world approach and control their own environmental problems. Environmental Economics, Second Edition, is ideal for undergraduate economics courses and beginning graduate courses in environmental management.

New to this Edition
* Utilizes a new structure: the first part is normative, the second part positive
* Provides an updated treatment of valuation and moves it to the first part of the text
* Substantially revises coverage of cost-benefit analysis, property rights, and market failure, resulting in greater clarity
* Includes new chapters on voluntary environmental protection and additional sections on discounting and dynamics
* Offers increased coverage of open access resources and fisheries
* The technical level throughout the text is much more consistent from chapter to chapter ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars So So
Purchased for an Eviro Econ Course.Book covers most topics, weak on valuation.Full of typos.Discussion of many topics very convoluted.Not an easy read.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great introduction to Environmental Economics .
Actual rating - 4.5 stars .

I read this book as a must-read for the Environmental Economics course I had taken in the beginning of the last semester . I think this book is a great choice for students that are interested in this topic . Myself , I didn't know what to expect in the beginning of the course , but it turned up to be a surprisingly interesting and important issue - with the good help of this book .

I have to say that I've learned a lot from reading this book , and it has been a pleasant experience too . Professor Kolstad has really accomplished a commendable achievement in writing a fluent , methodical , thorough and interesting book about Environmental Economics , nearly everyone who wishes to , can read and understand .

I say it as a student who hasn't read other works on the subject , but nevertheless , feels this book has many pluses as an introduction to this subject :

- The author , in spite of announcing it is a book for persons that have taken an Intermediate Microeconomics courses , makes far-reaching efforts to explain nearly every statement he proclaimed . This is a good feature students can use for reviewing forgotten material , deleting the need to use more fundamental books for understanding .

- Significant number of chapters includes a small use of mathematic tools . This fact is of considerable help for the layman , who is interested in expending horizons and lacks the necessary mathematical skills .

I believe the following points characterize many tutorials , but it's important to note them anyway;

- Every figure the author uses is accompanied with detailed explanations that enhance the reader's ability to understand the sketch and the whole subject while at it .

- Every chapter includes an introduction and a summery . The first connects the chapter to the previous one , and assists in grasping the place it takes in the big picture of things , while the second one summarize the major issues dealt with . This functions organize the material and construct an understandable structure of knowledge .

- One last thing , that consists an advantage constructed with disadvantage is the appearance of questions and problems in the end of each chapter , in the obvious order to help you check out your understanding , but with the irritating absence of answers and solutions (!) . What's the point in composing personal examinations without any achievable , certified solutions ? How can I know I am right ? I recommend authors to annex a booklet/extra pages with the correct answers , along with a full description of the way to the solution plus explanations - if you include such a tutorial tool in your book - do it right .

Excluding the last disadvantage , I'm most pleased with this book , and would recommend it for anyone who is interested in environment and its protection problems

    1-0 out of 5 stars Warning: This Book is EXTREMELY Biased
    This book is INCREDIBLY biased. It's basically an excuse to bash the Republicans and all conservatives in general. It does not portray events and facts fairly. For example, when the Democratic Congress or President failed to accomplish, they are called well-intentioned but constrained by political pressures. If the Republicans fail to accomplish, they are labeled actively anti-environmental and "secretly" taking advantage of their power to purposely harm the environment. The policies and concepts are well-explained, but the rampant bias makes the book much less credible. It's really hard to take seriously.

    4-0 out of 5 stars informative and interesting
    a lot of books in this genre can be dry and a total snooze to read.this book is written not only well and full of great information, but it is such an easy read.i read through chapters faster than any other "text" book i have had.i was entertained enough that it is questionable if i wasn't reading the book for pleasure instead of work.:)

    5-0 out of 5 stars Newest in a classic series
    This is the new edition of "Environmental Policy in the 1990s,"a series now considered to be the most important in the field. This editionhas some of the classic essays from earlier editions, but is expanded tocover the Clinton administration and address issues of a global nature.

    Ihave been using this series as a basic text in graduate courses inenvironmental policy for years. I consider it to be a primary source of notonly teaching, but research and basic information. All of the essays areclearly written and as unbiased as possible. I give this my highestrecommendation.

    (Addendum in 2007. This series is up to six editions with a seventh due out this summer. All are essential for the serious student of environmental policy and history). ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Class Textbook
This book is very well written, well researched, and the subjects covered are broad.It seems to compliment the instructor in my class very well.The only reason I did not give it 5 stars is a lack of perspective re sustainability, i.e., human kind keeps surviving disasters, endemics, disease, etc., only to increase in population.At some point, the population will no longer be sustainable.While there are certain resources that are in limited supply today, I believe the book should have explored those resources that have the capability to be significant in terms of population limiting - now and in a future tense.

5-0 out of 5 stars Clean copy, like new
The price was great for a clean, like-new copy of the text and quick shipping. One page in the middle did have some highlighting, which was not mentioned, but it's a minor thing.

3-0 out of 5 stars review of order
I am happy to recieved the book. However, I am dissatisfied with the fact that I had to wait almost a week and a half to get the book. I ordered a book a week before and it said that it was in stock and would have reached my home in 3 business days. The day it was supposed to arrive at my home, my money had been refunded due to it not being in stock. This caused a delay in my schedule by ordering this book and waiting a week and a half to get it.
