Format: PDF / Kindle (mobi) / ePub


The Biology and Anatomy & Physiology Helps series is designed to provide a review of the objectives and vocabulary covered by many instructors. This series is in note-like format to supplement any student study guide on the topic covered, and provides a self test at the end of each text to help with material review. Intended as an aid for research projects, advanced homeschoolers, AP high school students and college students in nursing, pre-med, pre-vet, biology, zoology and biochemistry.
The Biology and Anatomy & Physiology Helps series is designed to act as a lesson supplements. This text is not intended to provide a comprehensive review of the materials covered without a full Biology or Anatomy & Physiology curriculum to back it up.
The Biology and Anatomy & Physiology Helps series also provides note taking tips as an aid to the student to further develop classroom and study skills.
This volume covers Blood.
