For introductory courses for biology majors. Uniquely engages biology students in active learning, scientific thinking, and skill development. Scott Freeman's Biological Science is beloved for its Socratic narrative style, its emphasis on experimental evidence, and its dedication to active learning. Science education research indicates that true mastery of content requires a move away from memorization towards active engagement with the material in a focused, personal way. Biological Science is designed to equip students with strategies to assess their level of understanding and identify the types of cognitive skills that need improvement. With the Sixth Edition, content has been streamlined with an emphasis on core concepts and core competencies from the Vision and Change in Undergraduate Biology Education report. The text's unique BioSkills section is now placed after Chapter 1 to help students develop key skills needed to become a scientist, new "Making Models" boxes guide learners in interpreting and creating models, and new "Put It all Together" case studies conclude each chapter and help students see connections between chapter content and current, real-world research questions. New, engaging content includes updated coverage of global climate change, advances in genetic editing, and recent insights into the evolution of land plants. Strong media Integration supports book features with MasteringBiology activities, Learning Catalytics (TM), and new whiteboard videos that guide students in completing "Making Models" assignments. Also available with MasteringBiology (TM) MasteringBiology from Pearson is the leading online homework, tutorial, and assessment system, designed to improve results by engaging students before, during, and after class with powerful content and activities. Instructors ensure students arrive ready to learn by assigning educationally effective content before class and encourage critical thinking and retention with in-class resources such as Learning Catalytics (TM). Students can further master concepts after class through traditional and adaptive homework assignments that provide hints and answer-specific feedback. The Mastering gradebook records scores for all automatically graded assignments in one place, while diagnostic tools give instructors access to rich data to assess student understanding and misconceptions.

Biological Science by Scot Freeman is well written and concise. A wealth of clear and colorful diagrams and illustrations make the material easy to understand and enjoyable to read. The international version, which I purchased,was identical in content to the US version and saved me a lot of money. It is paperback instead of hardback, but for the price difference, it is well worth it.

I studied biology some years ago, but I've learnt so many new things from reading this book. It doesn't just present the facts, but incorporates them in a style that makes the reader aware of how biologists experimented and researched their way to what is known in biology.
With an emphasis on experimental design, the reader learns to appreciate what is required for investigating the challenges that lie ahead in this field.
My one complaint would be, that although the diagrams are well drawn, their layout could be better incorporated with regard to the text. (For example, figures referred to over the page in the text.).
