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
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.
