The book "Biology for Medical Entrance" is intended for students who are preparing for careers in medical and health. It is a comprehensive all in one biology book that provides articles that will prove invaluable to students appearing in national and state level Medical Entrance Examinations.
• Chapters reflect the extensive and up-to-date coverage of molecular biology,
immunology, cytology, genetics, ecology, botany and zoology. Each includes explicit
diagrams illustrating the intricacy of the described mechanisms. Each chapter begins with the understanding of biological phenomena.
• Exclusive diagrams have been used extensively throughout; they're being over 1500 in the book, both to explain the text and to make it more interesting to look at.
• The appendix of the book includes Author's Diary, this transcribed and spliced matter acts as pre-test refresher, when the entrance examination is nearby. This refreshing and revitalizing treatment generates a perfect confidence to win the task.
• The end of the book provides encyclopaedic index of topics and articles described
throughout the book.
