Item description for Easy Mathematics for Biologists by Peter C. Foster...
Because elementary mathematics is vital to be able to properly design biological experiments and interpret their results. As a student of the life sciences you will only make your life harder by ignoring mathematics entirely. Equally, you do not want to spend your time struggling with complex mathematics that you will never use. This book is the perfect answer to your problems. Inside, it explains the necessary mathematics in easy-to-follow steps, introducing the basics and showing you how to apply these to biological situations. Easy Mathematics for Biologists covers the basic mathematical ideas of fractions, decimals and percentages, through ratio and proportion, exponents and logarithms, to straight line graphs, graphs that are not straight lines, and their transformation. Direct application of each of these leads to a clear understanding of biological calculations such as those involving concentrations and dilutions, changing units, pH, and linear and non-linear rates of reaction. Each chapter contains worked examples, and is followed by numerous problems, both pure and applied, that can be worked through in your own time. Answers to these can be found at the back.

A reader from Baltimore, MD Mar 29, 2000
Well written guide to the basics such as concentrations, dilutions, logs etc. with lots of useful worked examples. The only problem is the book is a bit too basic for all mathematic needs during a biological degree.
