The International BaccalaureateÂ® (IB) was founded in Geneva, Switzerland in 1968 as a non-profit educational foundation that endeavored to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who would go on to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect. What began as a single program for internationally mobile students preparing for college, has grown into a series of programs for students up to age 19. Barron’s is pleased to offer a brand new review guide for the IB Biology exam. The content of the exam is compiled from the newly revised IB Biology course syllabus. This review book focuses specifically on the syllabus material to ensure that students are fully prepared and includes:

Connections to the Nature of Science (NOS) theme that runs throughout the syllabus

A section on mathematical calculation and statistical analysis review
2 full-length paper 1, 2, and 3 practice exams with fully explained answers
The book is formatted to prepare students for either the one-year SL (standard level) or the two-year HL (higher level) biology exam.
