4 out of 5 stars
By: Carol R. Ember, Melvin Ember, Peter N. Peregrine
This book covers multiple areas such as biological anthropology, archaeology, and linguistics. This textbook helped me tremendously on my exams in my intro to anthropology course. I would recommend this book to future students.
Pros: This textbook highlights the most significant terms, majors areas of study in anthropology, and gives you examples of how the content can be applied. There are infographics and other pictures that enhance the reading content. At the end of the chapter, there are bullet points summarizing what the reader should have learned which serves as a great review opportunity. This is a fantastic book for the classroom.
Cons: Since this book gives a brief overview, there are some details that the professor or reader may need to fill in to fully understand the material. There are no practice tests.
Who is this for? This book is better for people with little to no biology or knowledge in anthropology. This book gives a brief overview on varies topics to get students introduced to what anthropology is as a study.
