5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book. October 12, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I am a homeschooling dad doing AP biology with my oldest 3 kids. I have purchased a number of AP Biology text books and also purchased this book. The quality of this book is amazing. Time and time again I turn to this book to explain biological concepts not adequately explained in these AP textbooks. Rene provides an excellent overview of the topic, lays it out and then starts to zero in on her explanations of how a particular concept works.

Great job Rene!

More About the Author

I'm a science teacher, writer, wife, and mom (not necessarily in that order!) who lives in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. At Everett Community College in Everett, Washington (about 40 miles north of Seattle), I teach classes in general biology, cellular biology, microbiology, and global health. In addition to working with my college students, I sometimes work on science teaching with teachers in the local K-12 school systems.

I've basically always loved science -- one of my earliest memories is trying to out-compete a fellow student in elementary school to see who could collect more facts about the solar system! Although that contest was about astronomy, biology proved to be my lasting love. I majored in biology at Boston University, taking lots of classes in botany and microbiology. After that, I worked for a while in a lab devoted to science and science writing before heading to graduate school at the University of Washington, where I earned a Ph.D. in Botany. It was in graduate school that I discovered that I really love helping others learn about science.

Ever since grad school, I've been on a journey to learn how to help others understand science. That journey has led me to learning more about learning itself, as well as to write science books that are designed for non-scientists or students of science (which you can see here on my Amazon page).

In my spare time (hah hah), I'm a mad reader of books of all sorts, a scrapbooker, a good cook, a haphazard gardener, and a wanna be backyard farmer.

If you check out any of my books, I hope you enjoy them and find them useful! If you'd like to take a mini-biology class from me, you can sign up through Ed2Go at http://www.ed2go.com/courses/bio. Science helps us understand the world around us and I truly believe that everyone needs -- and can learn to appreciate -- a little science in their lives.
