Biology Coloring Workbook is a breakthrough approach to studying the science of life.  Learning interactively through coloring fixes biological concepts in the mind and promotes quick recall on exams.  Rather than learning cell structure by forcing yourself to memorize the name and function of each organelle, you can benefit from reviewing your own colorful portrait of the cell.
