5.0 out of 5 stars Great reference... July 7 2010
By W. Fitzgerald - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I recently took a class and this was the textbook that we used, also I wanted to raise the ratings from the 1 star ratings of people who were unhappy with 3rd party sellers and lowered the average for this book unnecessarily.

It's full of information about what nutrients do what, and has a lot on calories and how many servings of each nutrient you need for a certain number of calories. For example, you need 2 cups of vegetable per day for a certain amount of calories. I actually lost 20 pounds by following the guidelines for 2000 and 1500 calorie diets. It also goes into detail about food allergies, and even has some recipes in the back to make healthier versions of traditional recipes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Must have to accompny the textbook!! April 21 2011

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
My teacher did not recommend this, but I was glad I got it. It is a great review with the book, and I would say 90% of the material from the tests I took was included in the review sections and many of the test questions were in practice quizzes. Of course every class and teacher is different, so I can only vouch for me. I got an A on every test though, and I could not have done it without this study guide. It has lots of practice tests and assignments for every chapter that aid in learning the material.

This study guide is great but only if you buy the actual book to accompany it. I messed up and bought this and now it's useless. It is what it is.
