Mastering Biology 3rd edition has been fully revised and updated to provide the information required for today's syllabuses. The book provides an interactive element where the readers can focus on the learning objectives, find them easily in each chapter, check their knowledge and understanding by answering the wide-ranging questions and revise their work using the end of chapter summaries. Mastering Biology can be a useful primer for students beginning A Level Biology after studying an integrated course at GCSE. It will also appeal to further education students.
