I have often started reading on a subject within Science, perhaps from one or more sources, and they seem to use different terms or words to say the same thing and it would seem that I have to learn all the terms and examples to fully grasp what the book or webpage is saying.
This is where a helpful glossary of scientific words and terms comes in very handy as it offers an easy to understand explanation and it uses day to day language to explain things to people who are need or want to learn from the ground up.
Once you learn the multiple meanings for different words and know they are all in one place and are all right you can move forward quicker and find yourself putting down a book or closing a page and going on a hunt to find out what this word means.
Most of the time your gut instinct will be right about what the word means but you, being into Science, will not be able to move on until you know for sure that this word means what you think it does.
The terminology has the very basic terms up to the semi advanced; so, no matter where you are in your studies this glossary is definitely worth a look as I have found it to be a time saver especially when reading more than one book as each book seems to have it own unique way of explaining, each is right but depending on the person and their country it can get a little confusing.
