Published by Barrons Educational Services
Distributed by Simon & Schuster

This brand-new manual offers New Jersey high school students in-depth content and conceptual preparation for the required statewide biology exam. An introductory chapter describes biology as a scientific discipline and discusses the characteristics of all living things. Fifteen chapters that follow focus on specifics, which include:

  • Cells, organic biomolecules, cellular transport and reproduction
  • Molecular genetics, Mendelian genetics, and genetic technology
  • Energy exchanges and classification of living things
  • Energetics
  • Human body systems and classification of living things
  • Ecology, biomes, and human impacts on life forms and on the earth

  • Each chapter concludes with a glossary of biological terms, suggestions to students for organizing their notes, and a set of review questions with answers that reflect the types of questions students will encounter on the actual test.
