Book Description

Sept. 1 2009 Barron's Review Course
This updated classroom review book covers all topics prescribed by the New York State Board of Regents in two comprehensive study units. Unit One explains the process of scientific inquiry, including the understanding of natural phenomena and laboratory testing in biology. Unit Two deals with understanding and application of scientific concepts, with specific focus on cell function and structure, the chemistry of living organisms, genetic continuity, the interdependence of living things, the human impact on ecosystems, and several other pertinent topics. Two recent Regents exams are presented with all questions answered. The book's added features include glossaries of prominent scientists and biological terms. In this new edition, teachers will appreciate the addition of Essential Questions to assist them in developing standards-based learning units and curriculum maps at the local level.

Finally! A tool for New York's biology teachers and students! When the New York State Education Department published its most recent curriculum for high school biology, many components were changed, but little course content was specified. This left New York's biology teachers asking 'What do we teach?' and biology students asking 'What do we learn?' LET'S REVIEW BIOLOGY: THE LIVING ENVIRONMENT finally provides some professional guidance to help students and teachers answer these questions. Suggested material and practice questions are provided that help 'put flesh on the bones' of the core curriculum for New York State's biology program. Schools can use it to design local curricula; students can use it to 'nail' the Regents exam! A 'must have' for biology teachers and students!

3.0 out of 5 stars Not that good Dec 31 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Usually when you are looking for a review book, you want one that has a balance of review text and questions. This book is one of the better biology review books out there right now, but there are much better books. In various cases, this book simply states facts rather than elaborating on the actual idea in order for students to learn the material better. For example, read the chapter on biochemistry and you wil see that it doesn't bother to explain bonding in depth, or to the extent as you would in a class. For honors biology students, I would reccomend an SAT 2 book, such as Kaplan, or the "N and N Review Book," which is not for the Living environment curriculum. However, it follows the old regents syllabus, and has a source of amazing questions along with a concise review of facts, solidified with diagrams and key concepts. For Biology, I think that the only Barron's book you would want to buy is the Regents Exams and Answers booklet, which provides the real questions, as most ofyou probably know. Since the book has some review and a few questions, I had to give it 3 / 5 stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is a great book for reviewing for the Regents Test. June 1 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I recently purchased Barrons Lets Review Biology about a month ago. I was very pleased of the easy to read layout and the answers explained section. The book has given me a better understanding of Biology and has prepared me for the Regents examination in June. I would definitely recomend this book to anyone, no matter what their status is in Biology

5.0 out of 5 stars It was great! I dont know what the one star guy's talkin about July 17 2007
By Abdus Shahid - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I am studying this regents biology book over the summer before I start school in a specialized HS and this is great! I came from one of those schools where they don't teach you anything, where the students teach each other. Most people at my school never knew their three times tables yet they graduated. I was on a normal school level, but they still thought i was very smart.

The point of saying all that is that if i had no teachers, i had to teach myself, and I learned absolutely nothing on science that year in [...]! So I got the [...] science test barrons book and passed.

Since I knew people from better schools are going to compete with me now, and that i wont be "smarty pants" anymore, i brought this biology book along with other barrons regents books and studied them.

Now I'm understanding everything, and I am absolutely glad I got this book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty Good June 8 2007
By Mike Quinn - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I basically taught myself Bio (and took the SAT II and got a 800) with this book even before school began. It is pretty helpful but once again I found the older ones more helpful because the tests were harder.
