Overview

Let's Review Biology covers all topics prescribed by the New York State Board of Regents and serves as a valuable companion to high school biology textbooks. Two comprehensive study units cover the following material:

  • Unit One explains the process of scientific inquiry, including the understanding of natural phenomena and laboratory testing in biology
  • Unit Two focuses on specific biological concepts, including 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

Question sets are included in each section of the book and are accompanied by explanations of answers and wrong choices. Two recent Regents exams are also included with all questions answered. The book also features teachers’ guidelines for developing New York State standards-based learning units.

"Let's Review Biology - The Living Environment" is the most up-to-date and comprehensive resource book for New York's Regents Biology course I have found. No other review/text book matches the current NYS Standard for Living Environment like this one does. It clearly has the inside track on what's happening at the State level with the Regents Biology Exam. Highly recommended!

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!
