About Roger Prior:
Roger started out in teaching senior biology in 1976. From there he developed sets of study notes for the more challenging components of grade 12 biology. These notes became so popular that he turned them into study guides for the unit in biology. This led to his first print of “Biology 12 – A Student Resource.”
The second edition of “Biology 12 – A Student Resource” came out in 1999. Roger set on printing only 60 copies, but the demand had grown so much, he printed and sold over 200. A few years later, he was selling this edition by the thousands to students in British Columbia.
The natural progression led Roger to start creating guides for Biology 11, which are now on their 5th edition and his Biology 12 books have reached their 7th edition. Roger retired in 2012, where he started turning his highly popular books into interactive eBooks.
