What do we think of LexisNexis Academic Search (beta)?

I can’t seem to find any indication about what the EasySearch does for default searching… it just says it lets you ‘search just like you can on the Internet’ or somesuch.  What does that mean?  Does that mean search the way Google searches, or the way Yahoo! searches?  Is it like an Excite meta search? What’s it doing?  Is it a default AND-ing operation between each term, or a default “exact phrase” operation?  The tutorial didn’t clear this up for me…
