The 9th edition of Zoology continues to offer students an introductory general zoology text that is manageable in size and adaptable to a variety of course formats. It is a principles-oriented text written for the non-majors or the combined course, presented at the freshman and sophomore level.
New to the 9th edition are Learning Outcomes and Learning Outcome Review questions. Learning Outcomes help students identify and focus on the major concepts of each chapter. Learning Outcomes Review questions conclude each major concept to reinforce critical concepts students have just studied and include critical thinking questions that assess their understanding of those concepts.
Introducing Connect Zoology! For the first time in this discipline Connect and Connect Plus allow instructors to provide auto-gradable and interactive assessment material tied to learning outcomes and provide students better integration through live ebook links to animations, videos and audio assets.

I am young and not old enough to be in college, but I loved zoology and wanted to get a headstart in it. I am very young, 13 years old. I only didn't understand the second chapter, but i am sure i will understand it when i am older. I love animals and want to be a zoologist, and this book was perfect for me. I am probably the first teenager to ever read this book, it is very scientific. Before I knew almost nothing about zoology. It is not too confusing, but requires a lot of thinking and concentration. Great college book, and my guess is that they will have this book in college, except maybe by then there would be a higher edition. Recommended for students who want to learn zoology and scholars.
Overall, if you love animals and find them fascinating, and are looking for a job in zoology in your future, zoology is a great way to go. It is one of the widest fields of science and gives you many options. In zoology you specialize in one part of it, leaving animal-lovers with many options.
