Biology Discs Boast Reinforcing Activities

A glossary defines and pronounces biological terms, and the Pretest/Post–;test section asks randomly assorted multiple choice questions. Plus, online help offers information on program operation and features.

Multiple co¼es, network versions and preview discs are available. Cyber Ed, Paradise, CA, (916) 872–;2432. WM
