If you are looking for a quick nuts-and-bolts overview of biology, it’s got to be Schaum's Easy Outline. This book is a pared-down, simplified, and tightly focused version of its Schaum’s Outline cousin, with an emphasis on clarity and conciseness. Graphic elements such as sidebars, reader-alert icons, and boxed highlights stress selected points from the text, illuminate keys to learning, and give you quick pointers to the essentials.
