Chapter Resources

The Chapter Resources menu item organizes the hundreds of individual resources on the website by chapter, so that students can access the support items as they work their way through the text one chapter at a time. The student need not remember in which chapter each resource was introduced because any resource can be accessed from the Index.

The Study Guide/Lab Manual provides structured study resources to help students move from mastering the new terms, to mastering the concepts, to applying the concepts, to developing the hands-on skills necessary to conduct research. Each chapter has the following sections.

  • Fill-in-the-Blank Questions
  • True/False Questions
  • Multiple-Choice Questions

The Index contains over 500 direct links to material on the site, with many resources referenced under multiple names to make things easy to find.
