This book contains about 120 pages of old exams given from fall, 2007, through spring, 2011, along with the answers, study tips, etc. The questions can also be used as a source of vocabulary words because each multiple-choice question on such exams typically contains five or six scientific terms. The genetics section will be especially helpful, mainly because the questions require that you learn how to answer them by multiplying fractions instead of doing a Punnett square. The questions are sorted into areas such as cell biology, chemistry, evolution, etc. You'll also discover that some teachers use the same questions over and over again. There is a link to both the print and e-versions of OUTWITTING COLLEGE PROFESSORS in the introduction.
