Introduction to Biology


I bought this book to access basic biological theory, however, it is designed for college level students covering the aspects that students have most difficulty with, so to be honest it is a bit heavy and involved for me. I would like access to a teacher. There is a website for this book, but being a computer dill, I couldn't access the website, which may explain the theory further.I did biology in 1966, and passed, and year 11 Chemistry at night school in 1984,along with HSC general maths which I got a D for, this is the sum total of my scientific knowledge. I did buy a book on chemistry for biology students which was easier to understand, but it helps me with this book. Why I bought two books was so I could understand the original book on 'History of Life', a textbook for a course of the same name in the US. However, I am glad I bought this last book, Introduction to Biology as I am learning new things everyday and the world is beginning to make sense to me now.
