Here is an excellent reference source designed specifically for people reading or writing articles relating to various areas of science. The declared intention of Elizabeth Martin, the author, was to provide the students and other learners of English with very accurate explanations of unfamiliar words and/or terms which the students may come across during their studies. It offers the full coverage of terminology, as well as concepts and laws relating to different sciences, such as physics, math, chemistry, paleonthology, biotechnology, computer technology and so many others. All of the entries that have been chosen by the author for inclusion in the book are very brief and clear and it makes the publication a very handy and readable reference source. The publication would appeal not only to the professional scientists and students but also to any other persons, who are interested in science - it is definitely worth browsing. It is one of the best selling dictionaries available at the market today, and it contains more than nine thousand entries, well-arranged and covering a wide range of areas; all of the entries are up-to-date and supplemented with some additional useful data lie the biographies of the prominent scientists, illustrations and diagrams, charts, figures etc.
