Campbell Biology Reading Guides

Campbell BiologyCampbell 9th edition is a widely used textbook in both AP Biology and college freshman biology courses.  Thankfully, the text comes with some wonderful reading guides to accompany each chapter.  I have my AP Biology students use the following guides as they read each chapter.  It is a great time saver for students since they don’t have to take detailed notes on their own!

You will find these as PDFs on many other websites, I have created Google Docs for them linked below.  The following chapters are aligned to the AP Biology 2013 Curriculum Framework.
