Biology Dictionary

Post by calvin.ng.wh » Wed May 30, 2007 9:47 am

I'm in need of a biology dictionary for the classes I'm attending now, and I'm not too sure which biology dictionary is better.

So I need valuable suggestions from all of you who've used it so frequently and know which dictionary to go for.

Please provide me with the title, the publisher and also the ISBN of the dictionary along with your suggestions.

Thank you in advance!

Should be about £8

^^One of my ex-girlfriends said that. I stress the ex part.

why don't you use the dictionary on our site?
