Setting the standard for excellence, accuracy, and innovation

Campbell Biology delivers a trusted, accurate, current, and pedagogically innovative experience that guides students to a true understanding of biology. The author team advances Neil Campbell’s vision of meeting and equipping students at their individual skill levels by developing tools, visuals, resources, and activities that encourage participation and engage students in their learning. Known for strategically integrating text and artwork, this trusted course solution works hand in hand with Mastering Biology to reinforce key concepts, build scientific skills, and promote active learning. The 12th Edition meets demonstrated student needs with new student-centered features, expanded interactivity in the eText, downloadable Reading Guide worksheets that emphasize key concepts, and a fully revised assessment program. 

 

Personalize learning with Modified Mastering Biology

By combining trusted author content with digital tools and a flexible platform, Mastering personalizes the learning experience and improves results for each student. Mastering Biology extends learning and provides students with a platform to practice, learn, and apply knowledge outside of the classroom.
