Step 2: Check your understanding
Students are encouraged to:
* Complete the questions at the end of chapters and answer online multiple-choice questions to reinforce their learning.
* Use the online flashcard app to master essential terms and phrases.

Step 3: Take note of extra advice
Revision tips--and hints for getting higher grades on exams--are presented throughout.

Step 4: Go the extra mile
Students can explore the suggestions for further reading to take their understanding one step further.

Features of the Thrive in Bioscience Series:
* Written by a group of highly experienced educators
* Succinct writing style and clear, bulleted presentation
