The 2nd edition of the Collins COBUILD American Basic Dictionary is the ideal dictionary for elementary-level learners of American English. Up-to-date, easy-to-use and fully illustrated, the dictionary is particularly suitable for students who are studying at English-medium schools.The Collins COBUILD American Basic Dictionary covers all the essential words and phrases that students at this level need to master. The full-sentence definitions are written using simple language and the examples, taken from the 4.5-billion-word Collins Corpus, show learners how English is really used.It also includes a wide range of curriculum terms for students whose first language is not English, but who are studying other subjects at school through the medium of English.Packed full of engaging vocabulary-building features, the dictionary encourages students to learn new words and improve their fluency. The features help learners to explore the language for themselves, giving them the tools they need to decode new words and texts and to become confident learners and speakers of English.‘Spelling Partners’ show students words that are spelt the same but have different meanings; ‘Sound Partners’ show students words that sound alike but have different meanings. ‘Word World’ and ‘Picture Dictionary’ features illustrate topic-specific vocabulary and ‘Word Partners’ highlight common collocations (words that frequently appear together). Finally, ‘Word Builders’ and ‘Usage’ notes teach students how words are formed, what they mean and how to use words in the correct contexts.With hundreds of images illustrating key terms, the Collins COBUILD American Basic Dictionary is the ideal reference tool for elementary learners of American English.
The textbook is based on modern organic chemistry and considers the structure and chemical transformations of organic compounds, especially those that have biological importance. Special attention is given to the chemical reactions that have analogies in living systems. The book contains about 250 problems on all topics and solutions for them. This book conforms to the Federal educational program on Bioorganic Chemistry for medical schools and universities. It is meant for students who study Bioorganic Chemistry during one term. The book may also be useful for teachers and students of specialized sec ondary schools with instruction conducted in English and colleges, whose main interest is medicine, pharmacy, biology and agriculture.
The methodical development for Laboratory Work in Biophysics is a set of teaching materials and guidelines for laboratory work in biophysics that has been prepared and held at the Al-Farabi Kazakh National University. This book is designed for a small biophysical workshop and a special workshop. The works presented here do not require complex and expensive equipment and can easily be reproduced in any university laboratory. The methodical development describes the main sections of Biophysics: thermodynamics of electrical conductivity in biological systems, bioelectric phenomena, photometric methods of biological system’s research, lasers in biology and medicine, and others. Self-help questions that were designed to further the understanding of the processes and phenomena observed during laboratory work can be found at the end of each chapter. This guide is intended for university students studying in the fields of biology, biotechnology, ecology, and medicine. Publishing in authorial release.

This workbook has been specifically designed for international students of Russian medical schools who study pharmacology. It is supposed to be used as an aid for better preparation for Pharmacology practical classes. The content of the workbook corresponds to the Pharmacology course program approved for the third year students by the Russian Federation Ministry of Health and Social development. Part 1 of the Workbook consists of 16 units, of which 3 units are grouped under the heading of General Pharmacology, and the remaining 12 units are included in the Particular Pharmacology division. The units begin with Topics To Be Discussed to familiarize students with particular questions they will be asked at the lesson. Students will find it helpful to review Background information (brief description of basic pharmacological processes and characteristics of particular drug groups) and Key terms provided in each unit. The units dealing with Particular Pharmacology include classifications of drugs. As the name workbook implies it contains a variety of tasks for self-training, the tasks being presented in the form of multiple choice questions, tables, pictures and diagrams as well as clinical cases. In general, the book aims at better comprehension of major pharmacological topics including understanding of mechanisms of drug action which determine both their main therapeutic and side effects. Students will also find answer keys to check their progress. The authors hope this kind of training may be of interest not only for foreigners but also for other medicine and pharmacy students.
Course book highlights nine principle topics of the module «First Aid» as a part of the subject «Health and Safety, Disaster Medicine» and contains key questions for each part as well as provisional tests for the students’ self-check.
