Cell Biology by Stephen R. Bolsover; Jeremy S. Hyams; Elizabeth A. Shephard; Hugh A. White; Claudia G. WiedemannThis text tells the story of cells as the unit of life in a colorful and student-friendly manner, taking an "essentials only" approach. By using the successful model of previously published Short Courses, this text succeeds in conveying the key points without overburdening readers with secondary information. The authors (all active researchers and educators) skillfully present concepts by illustrating them with clear diagrams and examples from current research. Special boxed sections focus on the importance of cell biology in medicine and industry today. This text is a completely revised, reorganized, and enhanced revision of From Genes to Cells.

Homework Helpers by Matthew DistefanoBiology is a science full of terms and concepts that range from the hard-to-imagine, such as the structure of an atom, to those we see every day, such as the structure of our own face in the mirror. How are these ideas and concepts related? WhatGÇÖs the best way to learn and remember them? Where can a student having trouble turn?Homework Helpers: Biology covers all of the topics included in a typical one-year Biology curriculum, including:-+ An approach to the study of biology using the scientific method and the skills and equipment used by most biologists.-+ The concept of the cell as the unit of structure and function of all life.-+ DNA and the chemical processes of inheritance.-+ The evolution of life on this planet and how humans are part of the process.-+ The study of the environments of life and how all life is interconnected on this planet.LetGÇÖs face it: Most science textbooks fall somewhere between Boring and Incomprehensible on the Usefulness Scale. And while class notes are important, nightly review of key material is vital to achieving good grades. But what good does it do to review a text you simply donGÇÖt understand?Designed to be used with the class textbook (or in place of the totally incomprehensible one!), Homework Helpers: Biology is a user friendly review book that will make any studentGÇöor those trying to help themGÇöfeel like he or she has a private Biology tutor. Concepts from the most obvious to the most complex are presented and explained in everyday English with a wide variety of diagrams, charts and illustrations.Each chapter includes detailed questions that allow students to assess how well theyGÇÖve mastered each idea. Not only does the author provide the right answers to these self-study questions, but also detailed explanations of why the wrong answers are wrong.The Homework Helpers Series is just what students need to boost their confidence and give them the help they need to ace even the most challenging classes.
