The CliffsStudySolver workbooks combine 20 percent review material with 80 percent practice problems (and the answers!) to help make your lessons stick. CliffsStudySolver Biology is for students who want to reinforce their knowledge with a learn-by-doing approach. Inside, you'll get the practice you need to master biology with problem-solving tools such as Clear, concise reviews of every topic Practice problems in every chapter - with explanations and solutions A diagnostic pretest to assess your current skills A full-length exam that adapts to your skill level Easy-to-understand tables and graphs, clear diagrams, and straightforward language can help you gain a solid foundation in biology and open the doors to more advanced knowledge. This workbook begins with the basics: the scientific method, microscopes and microscope measurements, the major life functions, cell structure, classification of biodiversity, and a chemistry review. You'll then dive into topics such as Plant biology: Structure and function of plants, leaves, stems, roots; photosynthesis Human biology: Nutrition and digestion, circulation, respiration, excretion, locomotion, regulation Animal biology: Animal-like protists; phyla Cnidaria, Annelida, and Arthropoda Reproduction: Organisms, plants, and human Mendelian Genetics; Patterns of Inheritance; Modern Genetics Evolution: Fossils, comparative anatomy and biochemistry, The hardy-Weinberg Law Ecology: Abiotic and biotic factors, energy flow, material cycles, biomes, environmental protection Practice makes perfect -and whether you're taking lessons or teaching yourself, CliffsStudySolver guides can help you make the grade. Author Max Rechtman taught high school biology in the New York City public school system for 34 years before retiring in 2003. He was a teacher mentor and holds a New York State certificate in school administration and supervision.
