Lutgens/Tarbuck’s innovative SmartFigures feature has been expanded, adding new digital content via Project Condor, Mobile Field Trips by Michael Collier, Animated Figures, and additional tutorial videos from Callan Bentley.This edition also includes MasteringGeology, the most complete, easy-to-use, engaging tutorial and assessment tool available.
