BOOKS - Middle Grade to Adult

5 Steps to a 5: AP Environmental Science provides the skills, knowledge, and test-taking confidence you need to achieve a high score on the exam. This wildly popular test prep guide matches the latest course syllabus and the latest exam. You'll get two full-length practice tests, detailed answers to each question, study tips, info on how the exam is scored, and much more.

Chapter 15 - Additive Manufacturing (3D Printing)
Written by a team of 58 international experts, the handbook includes new chapters on cloud computing, Internet of Things, and 3D printing (chapter 15 = my contribution).


Fully updated with all-new quizzes and test questions, Chemistry DeMYSTiFieD, 2nd Ed. has a new, intuitive arrangement of topics. Included new material is now part of introductory chemistry curricula and national subject tests such as ACT, SAT, and AP Chemistry. New chapter quizzes, final exam, and glossary, as well as a Periodic Table of Elements, are included.

Clear and easy to understand content explains science to students and adults alike. Text and educational tips offer a sound chemistry foundation for further scientific study in chemistry and other fields (e.g., biochemistry, environmental science, and thermodynamics).

A self-teaching guide for anyone interested in the environment and the ever changing nature of our planet. Topics include: atmosphere, water, global warming, atmospheric differentiation, geomorphology, glaciers, erosion, carbon dating, acid rain, and much more. Real world examples , environmental notes, tips, scientific news and international trends are included.

Now anyone with an interest in understanding the geological layers of the earth, different types of rock, earthquakes, volcanoes, tsunamis, tornadoes, hurricanes, deep ocean ridges, plate tectonics, weathering and more will have a solid reference at their fingertips. As with other books in the Demystified series, chapter quizzes and a sample final exam are included to help with comprehension.

The booming field of nanotechnology is all about building highly advanced super-small machines and devices from the ground up. Nanotechnology Demystified provides you with everything you need to know about the many biological, chemical, physical, environmental, and political aspects of nanotechnology. There's no faster, easier way to gain knowledge of this up-and-coming branch of science.

Interested in science, technology, art, computers (including cyber investigation), criminal justice or photography? The day-to-day crime scene investigation (CSI) work described in this book will have you on the edge of your seat.

Navigational Aids - (Great Inventions) Marshall Cavendish Benchmark
A fascinating, richly illustrated journey of historical exploration and technological discovery. Step into the life and times of the inventors of the maps, charts, celestial aids and much more.

Nanoscience is the study of individual atoms and molecules. This book offers insights into the huge applications for nanomaterials. Everything from baseball bats and racing bicycles to satellites and space elevators are improved by nanotechnology.
