General Biology Books
Edit General Biology consists of a brief introduction to two main fields of biology, Cellular and Evolutionary. Both Reece and Sadava do a wonderful job of introducing these concepts.
You can start with either Evolutionary or Cellular, but a basic knowledge of general chemistry would help with cellular. Both these books also contain units introducing general physiology, which would also be good to go over, but not required.
Physiology is actually very quantitative, but it is a very rewarding and interesting field. Physiology is broken into many different sub fields. Basic Introductory Anatomy and Physiology Edit This is a section on anatomic sciences and basic physiology.
At my school this is mainly taken by nurses and other allied health students. It is good to read through if you are rusty. I have also included some texts that are used by medical students. This section can be skipped if you have no interest in human anatomy, or you just want to learn "traditional" biology. Read Tortora and Martini, using Netter and Rohen as image references. I have no idea of their quality.
You won't need this unless you are in a lab setting.
This type of class is traditionally for biologists, but everyone can benefit from a good dose of general physiology. My go to text for this would be Sherwood. It is a fantastic and enjoyable read. I have not read Hill, but I heard it is good also.
Sherwood, Klandorf, and Yancey - Animal Physiology: From Genes to Organisms Hill, Wyse, and Anderson - Animal Physiology Medical Physiology Edit If you are a premed, nursing major, or someone interested in biological research dealing with humans, a grasp of medical physiology is essential.

Publication Date September 7, Instead the best strategy is to follow a preview, read, review format for each chapter. Don't worry about spoiling the ending, textbooks don't lead up to some climatic surprise as mystery thrillers do.
The trick to doing this is not to stop and take notes or highlight as you read, but rather to do it at the end of each page or after a couple of paragraphs. The preview step is designed to give you a broad overview of what you will be reading about, and the major topics or concepts you will be learning. To preview a textbook effectively, you will want to start at the very end of the chapter with the quiz questions.
Try and answer them as best you can before you start reading the chapter.
A Textbook of General Biology
This will give you a breakdown of exactly what you should hope to learn in your readings and also make those key points stand out in your mind later when you are going through the chapter.
Next, read the chapter's final summary, which will give you a background of the main ideas that will be covered. Finally go back and browse all of the headings and subdivisions of the chapter.
Now you can move on to reading the chapter. This should be active reading , unlike reading a story book, which is passive reading. In active reading you will take notes, ask questions, and highlight key points.
Stopping to do it as you read will breakup your flow. You may also highlight the wrong key point as you highlight something that seems important and then a few sentences later you read something that is even more vital. If you highlight everything that seems important as you go, you will probably wind up with to much highlighted material making browsing your notes harder.
Writing questions about key concepts along the margins or on post-its after you read each page is a great way to set yourself up for later testing.
Once you finish the chapter or a large section of it, you can go back and take a look at the questions. If you can answer them without having to reference the text , then you know you have comprehended your readings. The final review step is just to ensure you have understood everything.
Start by writing your own summary of the information in the chapter. This ensures you can expound on what you have learned and recall it for later use. Then move onto the chapter's review questions you started with and see how many you can answer correctly. If there are questions you can't answer, go back and study up on those areas.
A wandering writer who spends as much time on the road as in front of a laptop screen, Brett can either be found hacking away furiously at the keyboard or, perhaps, enjoying a whiskey and coke on some exotic beach, sometimes both simultaneously, usually with a four-legged companion by his side.
He has been a professional chef, a dog trainer, and a travel correspondent for a well-known Southeast Asian guidebook. He also holds a business degree and has spent more time than he cares to admit in boring office jobs.
He has an odd obsession for playing with the latest gadgets and working on motorcycles and old Jeeps. His expertise, honed over years of experience, is in the areas of computers, electronics, travel gear, pet products, and kitchen, office and automotive equipment.
