Great book would recomend to anyone doing pre health studies or nursing


This textbook covers the main topics required by GCSE syllabuses in human biology. It can also supplement GCSE biology courses and provide a basic reference for all students needing a grounding in human biology. Each unit is dealt with in a double-page spread with text on the left-hand page and diagrams on the right, allowing each topic to be easily assimilated. Simply-worded text with clear explanations of important technical terms, a detailed glossary, and vocabulary and comprehension tests reinforce understanding throughout the book.
