Shmoop, a publisher of digital curriculum and online test prep, has announced that it has taken the AP Biology Guide and made it... prettier. However, it hasn't just gotten a superficial, exterior overhaul. Shmoop's Guide is now jam-packed with tasty new tidbits, helpful hints and remarkable resources.

Shmoop's new and improved Guide:
--Has been upgraded to the new College Board AP format to be implemented in the 2012-2013 school year.
--Places a strong focus on the "Four Big Ideas of Biology." Have you ever asked, "Hey, what's the big idea?" Shmoop will tell you. Plus, Shmoop gears its content toward understanding rather than memorization. So no more practicing your lines in the mirror.
--Includes two lab sections for each "big idea," helping students increase the depth of their understanding.
--Offers a complete study guide, including practice exams, diagnostics and drills, all using the new four-answer choice format.

Check out Shmoop's AP Biology Guide, and discover that a plant cell isn't just a fern's mobile phone.
