Pearson Education Test Prep Series for AP® Biology by Fred and Theresa Holtzclaw, The Webb School of Knoxville

This Test Prep Workbook for AP® Biology is designed to support the AP® Biology Curriculum Framework. Each chapter reviews content that is Essential Knowledge and makes connections to the Framework. Material that may be used as Illustrative Examples is included and clearly distinguished from the required content.

This workbook will help students become familiar with the Big Ideas, apply the Science Practices, gain insight into the AP® labs, and prepare for the AP® Exam with practice tests. In addition to its student friendly features—You Must Know boxes, Tip From the Readers boxes, and practice problems—the workbook now integrates Science Practices throughout and includes an emphasis on making connections between topics.
