This Biology textbook contains all of the basic information required to learn about fundamentals of life and how it works. You should read this book if you wish to know more specifically about genetics, the human body, and the laws found throughout the spectrum and diversity life. If I could ask the author a question, I would like to know how much time it took to accumulate all of this information into a succinct textbook. I was surprised about how easy it was to learn the subjects. The book exp ...more
I took biology a long time ago--before they knew nearly as much as they do now about DNA, RNA, DNA replication, protein synthesis, etc. As part of my goals for the year, I am going to go through the online version of this book (available to all HCPS students and teachers)--including the worksheets, quizzes, etc. I'm on Chap 2, The Chemistry of Life. This should be beneficial in my job as a Homebound Teacher--because I always dread tutoring something I haven't mastered.
I read through and complete

I was surprised by how accurate the scientific facts were being that science is never the same and the explanations. Perspiration which was explained in the book is s ...more

I think people should read the biology book because you could learn a lot of stuff. Some question tot he author that i would have would be how long did it take to create the book. Some things that surprised me in this book were everything that Ive learned and how much information it has. An experience that i had from the book is by the weather and climate and how much it changes.The worldview in this book is teaching people about human life an other stuff.
yup. I have read most of this textbook. I don't believe Son #2 wil be a biologist.
