Where other books ask you to memorize stuff, we’re going to show you the must know ideas that will guide you toward success in biology. You will start each chapter learning what the must know ideas behind a biology subject are, and these concepts will help you answer the biology questions that you find in your classwork and on exams.

Dive into this book and find:

  • 250+ practice questions that mirror what you will find in your classwork and on exams.
  • A bonus app with 100+ flashcards that will reinforce what you’ve learned.
  • Extensive examples that drive home essential concepts.
  • An easy-access setup that allows you to jump in and out of subjects.
  • Biology topics aligned to national and state education standards.
  • Special help for more challenging biology subjects, including photosynthesis and cellular respiration.

We’re confident that the must know ideas in this book will have you mastering biology concepts in no time―or at least in a reasonable amount of time!
