"The Sciences: An Integrated Approach" has been used by over 100,000 students nationwide since it was published and is the leading text on the market for the integrated science course. Unlike any of its competitors, it fully integrates physics, chemistry, astronomy, earth sciences, and biology for students with little or no science background. Applauded by students and instructors for its easy-to-read style and detail appropriate for non-science majors, the fifth edition has thoroughly updated content bringing the most up-to-date coverage to the students in all five disciplines. The fifth edition marks the first time Wiley Plus is available with "The Sciences" - providing the text with an additional dimension in which students can, among other things, do homework and solve problems that relate to the science disciplines covered.
