EduTech’s newest release, Earth Science - A Comprehensive Study, focuses on the core curriculum concepts of the New York State Physical Setting: Earth Science. Topics in astronomy, meteorology, and geology and related Earth Science skills are addressed in this book.
This book was written by two experienced Earth Science teachers who were always searching for a concise but thorough study guide to prepare their students for success in the course and on the state exam. Thus they began to develop their idea to satisfy the need for a study resource.
The fifteen chapters of this book cover the topics and skills needed for success in Earth Science. Each chapter includes brief descriptions of core concepts followed by practice questions to check for understanding. Each chapter is divided into subtopics followed by short answer questions. These questions are designed to test for understanding of the concepts of Earth Science. At the conclusion of each topic is a review test of multiple choice and free response questions. This book puts in one place a concise summary of key concepts and relevant diagrams as well as sample free response and multiple choice questions.
Also included is a chapter which reviews and offers practice questions for each section of the Earth Science Reference Table (ESRT). The book ends with a review of the scientific inquiry skills pertinent to the Earth Sciences. A glossary, index, two regents exams, and an Earth Science Reference Table are included.
