"This title provides clear, nontechnical information on scientific theories, life forms, inventions, controversies, and discoveries, as well as the familiar topics in the earth, space, life, and physical sciences. Its easy-to-use, A-Z format makes it accessible to younger students."

"...Visually appealing and user-friendly, UXL Encyclopedia of Science is sure to find success with beginning researchers and is recommended for middle-school and junior-high-school students and the libraries that serve them."
-- Booklist (Febraury 2002)
"This work could be a useful home encyclopedia of school library addition for secondary grades. Unlike many similar works, the editor of this encyclopedia seems to have done his job--the entries are accurate and informative, the illustrations supportive, and the format user friendly and helpful."
-- ARBA (2002)
"The timely topics cover a wide range of science specialty areas. Clearly, this is a source designed with student users in mind. School libraries and public libraries with homework hot lines will find this a good choice."
-- RUSQ (December 1998)
"Production quality appears to be quite good, and compares favorably to other, perhaps more wide used encyclopedias."
-- Against the Grain (September 1998)
"Information is presented in a clear, straightforward manner. A convenient source on a wide range of sciences, recommended for quick reference and for basic research for middle-schoolers to senior high students."
-- RBB/Booklist (5/1/98)
"Will be particularly useful in providing current information in such rapidly growing areas as biochemistry and biology, health and medicine, and technology."
-- Knowledge Quest (March/April 1998)
"Information in this subject area is requested daily and is heavily used. The sample section on nuclear power looked very good. It was thorough, going into depth without being too technical, and giving definitions of terms. This is also a topic we frequently get homework assignments on."
