Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Biology is the study of life — the structure, function, growth, origin, and evolution of living things. Biology and chemistry work together to create what many people think of as "science." And passing Biology 101 in college is the entryway to further study in the sciences - if you can't do well in it, you aren't moving ahead. The Complete Idiot's Guide(r) to College Biology follows the curriculum to Biology 101 so closely that it serves as a perfect study guide to it, and it's also great for the AP Biology and SAT Subject Biology exams that high school students are taking in droves. Students can turn to it when their textbooks are unclear or as an additional aid throughout the semester.

The guide covers:

-Complicated processes such as photosynthesis and cellular respiration

-Explanations of complex biology, from DNA to ecosystems

-Offers online extras, including a chapter on microbes and an extended glossary

Suitable for the new learner or as a refresher for former students The Complete Idiot's Guide(r) to College Biology brings biology to the reader in a relaxed, accessible way.

Synopsis:

Don't know much about biology?

The Complete Idiot's Guide(r) to College Biology follows the curriculum of Biology 101 so closely that it serves as a perfect study guide, and it's also great for AP Biology and SAT Subject Biology exams that high school students are taking in droves. Students can turn to it when their textbooks are unclear or as an additional aid throughout the semester.

?The number of high school students who took AP Biology in 2008 increased 7 percent over the previous year (more than 154,000)

?College biology doesn't just lead to medical, dental, or veterinary school-biotechnology and biochemical jobs remain hot in today's job market

?Follows in the footsteps of The Complete Idiot's Guide(r)s as a terrific supplementary reading for AP Biology, though it follows the curriculum of the college Intro to Biology course.
