Designed especially to help prepare students taking the New York State Regents Examination, this book makes a valuable supplementary text for high-school-level Earth Science classes throughout the country. Organized into three main study units—astronomy, meteorology, and geology—this book provides extensive subject review material with updated questions and answers. It also includes one recently given full-length Regents Exam in Earth Science.

This book is helpful especially to a junior in high school but it doesn't give me the answers to the questions. I guess it's ok
