Recovering from endometriosis surgery has renewed my interest in biology.
I have written to researchers at MIT, but in the meantime, I want to learn how cell systems and immunology work.
I want to help find better treatments for this horrid disease besides surgery every 5-10 years or Femara (for cancer that can make the spine brittle).
I sent a note to my marine biologist sister for guidance. “It’s been 25 years. Where do I even begin?”
“Pearson/Campbell Biology ebook, of course!” She said.
So much has changed! Instead of Kingdom
And there are glowing blue-haired mice and neon green pigs to trace cell activity. Pearson’s 8th edition of Biology-this is your book now.
And the book is on my tablet.
And videos are on youtube.
One thing cool but lagging are the enhanced study items at masteringbioligy.com for $66.
Seriously, who still programs in flash?
Ok. I will have my husband put the heavy laptop on the kitchen counter so that I can play along.
The textbook on my tablet is incredible though.
Amazing graphics, zoomable text, I can scribble, make notes, jump to youtube.
Will let you know if that $66 was worth it.
I suspect it was.
