Earth Science Demystified
Say goodbye to dry presentations, grueling formulas, and abstract theories that would put Einstein to sleep -- now there's an easier way to master the disciplines you really need to know. McGraw-Hill's Demystified Series teaches complex subjects in a unique, easy-to-absorb manner, and is perfect for users without formal training or unlimited time. They're also the most time-efficient, interestingly written "brush-ups" you can find. Organized as self-teaching guides, they come complete with key points, background information, questions at the end of each chapter, and even final exams. You'll be able to learn more in less time, evaluate your areas of strength and weakness and reinforce your knowledge and confidence. Earth Science has never been easier to understand. Coverage includes: rocks and minerals, strata, fossils, volcanos, earthquakes, glaciers, wind and erosion, oceans, type of rock, atmosphere, carbon and calcium, the hydrologic cycle, and more.
