Review quote

I was sent a copy of your IB biology text for review and I really liked it. The pictures are great and the explanations are very straight forward. * Erick Roldan, Biology Teacher, Montgomery High School, USA * I am totally impressed with the effort that Andrew Allott and David Mindorff put into this latest edition to align with the new syllabus that is being introduced this upcoming year. I have been teaching Biology for 44 years, both in the US and internationally, and during my career I have used many different editions presenting AP, IB and IGCSE syllabi. This edition is well organized, loaded with beautifully coloured illustrations and photos, and like the previous
editions, the inclusion of assessment-based questions with marking values, and internal assessment suggestions, compliments this book. I have already suggested this book for next year and am looking forward to the Study Guide, when it becomes available in September. * Ray Mikolajczyk, IB Biology Teacher, King Faisal School, Saudi Arabia * We were planning on ordering another publisher's resources but many of our IB teachers attended workshops and came back asking for Oxford. The quality of the text and online support package is the reason. * Ron Patrick, Head of Science, International School of Panama *
