Introductory textbook

  1. Jul 19, 2010 #1
    Hey all, I'm looking for a good introductory biology textbook at the highschool level. I never took biology in highschool, so I need something that is very introductory, but at the same time a good book so that I'll be well prepared for biology courses in college.

    Nope, i disagreed. The book you mentioned is a university level textbook (maybe 1st & 2nd year). We used local books for bio at high school, so i can't recommend anything.

    I'm in a similar situation as you. I never studied biology OR chemistry in HS. I found THE best book on introductory chemistry and it just so happens that it's part of a larger series which covers biology as well:


    I don't know if their biology book is as good as their book on chemistry but it's worth a shot.
