Amazon.com description: Product Description: Pathways to Learning Environmental Science: A Study Guide for Success is a workbook and study guide designed to be used in conjunction with standard required texts in Environmental Studies courses. Used over the duration of a course it enhances comprehension, increases retention, and improves test scores. The book contains tear-out pages that can easily be attached to class notes or other course materials. Chapters feature questions and fill in the blank exercises, allowing students to check their understanding of the subject matter, and assess their progress early on. Everything in the book is designed to answer the question “What do I need to know?”.

The fourteen chapters of the book cover the many areas involved in environmental studies, including chemical, physical, biological, and earth science principles, earth sphere, and biomes. Also covered are environmental cycles, material and energy resources, pollution, and environmental laws and regulations.

Each chapter begins with an explanation of the topic to be discussed, and indicates where in a textbook students can find complete discussions, figures, charts and tables. Chapter exercises are presented in multiple choice, fill in the blank, and matching formats, allowing students many opportunities for self-evaluation prior to taking class examinations.

Of special note is the Rap City in Green feature of the book, which reviews major concepts in verse form. The musicality of the verses enhances appeal, and is a highly effective memory aid.
