Dr. Eaton has been teaching math and science for over 10 years and has won numerous "Teacher of the Year" awards and is consistently ranked as one of the top instructors in California. This course is indispensable for the student looking to ace the AP Biology test as Carleen covers the important concepts with fully illustrated diagrams before going in-depth into problems encountered in the multiple choice and free response sections.

Carleen Anderson had recorded as a member of the Young Disciples and as a backup singer for artists like Bryan Ferry, Paul Weller, and Guru by the time of her debut True Spirit in 1994. It's a self-assured Anderson, and she possesses a warm, soulful voice. She also reveals herself to be capable of temperature raising, orgasmic moans at the end of the (up to that point) Stevie Wonder-like "Morning Loving." True Spirit succeeds in drawing on older R&B vibes and making them sound fresh. Multi-instrumentalist Ian Green (who also produced) gives Anderson musical backdrops that range from bluesy to funky to sultry. The lyrics are literate and sophisticated, balancing a focus on romantic relationships ("Ain't Givin' Up on You," the title track) and socially conscious concerns ("Mama Said," "Nervous Breakdown"). Anderson's vocals are arresting icing on the cake, particularly haunting on the dramatic ballad "Only One for Me." True Spirit is a gorgeous album that constantly draws in the listener, both musically and spiritually.
