About this book

This Seventh Edition connects experimental material to key concepts of Cell Biology. The text offers streamlined information that reinforces a connection of key concepts to experimentation. Though the use paired art, and new science illustrations, readers benefit from a visual representation of experimental connections. Animations and video clips are tied to key illustrations with practice questions to provide a variety of ways to experience a key concept. This new edition offers an appropriate balance of concepts and experimentation. Experimental detail is offered when it helps to reinforce the concept being explained.

"This is an excellent textbook for undergraduate students and would make for an excellent course. It could also be used as supplemental text for abnormal psychology for the discussion of assessment tools, an area to which most undergraduate students do not get adequate exposure. Strongly recommended!"
