Advanced Biology: The Human Body 2nd Edition, is a college-prep course that provides an advanced study of the human body’s 11 organ systems. This 2nd edition has updated discussions and photographs, as well as new content.
Prerequisites: Biology & Chemistry
With updated text and beautiful new illustrations, this course prepares students to take the Advance Placement (AP) or College Level Examination Program (CLEP) tests. This advanced biology course covers both the anatomy and physiology of each of the human body’s organ systems for those students who have successfully completed high school biology and chemistry. Please note that the reproductive system is covered in detail, including accurate yet respectful illustrations and descriptions.
If a student completes the entire course, including documenting in a lab notebook all of the labs, experiments, and dissections, it could be counted as an honors course. This course prepares students to take the Advanced Placement (AP) or College Level Examination Program (CLEP) tests. The course provides the student with a solid background in advanced biology and is presented in a readable, conversational tone.
The high-quality hardcover student text contains all student material, study questions, laboratory exercises, and module study guides with color photos and illustrations. The softcover solutions-and-tests manual contains tests, test solutions, and answers to the module study guides. Because of the differences between first and second editions, students in a group setting cannot use both. The second edition of our Human Body course includes the following enhanced features:
High-quality color illustrations
More in-depth discussions and explanations of concepts
Online resources that explore concepts in more detail
Greater emphasis on connecting creation to the Creator
NOTE: Although the Anatomy Coloring Book is optional, the textbook does assign activities from the coloring book.
