The Eleventh Edition of Life: The Science of Biology is engaging, active, and focused on teaching the skills that students need in the majors biology course. New pedagogical features grab students' attention and give them a clear learning path through the text. Active learning is a priority throughout the text and media, including in the brand new and unique Active Learning Guide, giving instructors the support they need to encourage students to "learn by doing." Life continues and improves its focus on experiments and data, ensuring that students learn the skills they need to succeed in their careers. It is this potent combination of expertly crafted pedagogy and engagement that make this new edition the best resource for biology students. The Eleventh Edition of Life: The Science of Biology retains its reputation as the book with the highest quality content, clarity of language, and experimental emphasis, and the new focus and features make it a Life worth investigating. This textbook is available with LaunchPad. LaunchPad combines an interactive ebook with high-quality multimedia content and ready-made assessment options, including LearningCurve adaptive quizzing.

  1. Mycket innehåll med spretigt upplägg

    Jag tror att bokens bredd också blir dess fall.. Den innehåller mycket om många olika apsekter och grunder inom biologin. Men upplägget är svårtolkat, det är svårt att hitta det man letar efter i registret och det saknas en tydlig röd tråd, från det lilla till det stora.
    Rekommenderar starkt att man köper en kompletterande bok med mer utförlig information om man ska ha den här boken i någon kurs. Den är svår att ha på egen hand och speciellt inte som första bok inom biologi.
