The General Biology Beta Program is now available!
We are grateful to everyone who has been encouraging us in this project. This project is the most highly anticipated textbook Novare has published. The entire production team hopes that your students are blessed by this book and endowed with an excellent education in high school biology.
General Biology is only available at this time under Novare’s Beta Program
The Beta Program for General Biology is offered for those who wish to use a softcover “beta” version in the 2019-2020 school year. It contains the full book, chapter exercises, and a provisional glossary. It contains all of the full-color illustrations and graphics and will support Novare’s Mastery-Learning paradigm.
The beta version does not contain an index and has not undergone the rigorous review process by a team of experts that all Novare books receive. The final version will be published in the summer of 2020 in the final, reviewed, hardback form.
If you purchase the Beta Program, the soft-cover beta version will ship immediately. Then when the final hardback is published in June, everyone who purchased the Beta Program will receive the hardback version.
How the Beta Program Works
For the purchase price shown on this page, customers receive:
- the pre-reviewed softcover beta version – ships immediately
- the completed hardcover book – ships June 2020
In this package, the beta version is priced near our cost. It is available only with the Beta Program, not separately. The final textbook will undoubtedly receive many edits—from misplaced commas to minor word changes to structural revisions within a chapter.
The editing process never fails to reveal numerous deficiencies and errors. The process produces improvements to the lucidity and flow of the content in nearly every sentence. Obviously, the beta version will not have the benefit of this process. Customers who use the beta version should be aware of these limitations before purchasing.
What About the Resource CD and Experiment Manual?
The Resource CD and Experiment Manual are available as separate products. These are available on a provisional basis—the products are not complete, but purchasers will receive what is available electronically. As of December 1, more than half of the CD is finished and 3 of the experiments. When the final products are complete they will be shipped to purchasers. These products are available at the following links:
The beta version of General Biology began shipping on August 1, 2019. The completed hardback will ship immediately once they are in print. Those who purchase the Resource CD and Experiment Manual will receive them as soon as they are complete, which will be well before the end of the 2019-2020 school year.
