Right guys before you make any assumtions. I have made this so you can print it out and draw the cells. The summary with the descriptions and it is neccessary to print them out.  This will happen with most of my summaries for my biology summary notes because I think it is essential to copy out the diagrams to learn and revise the information efficently. If you stick around and check my profile regularly I will complete the GCSE biology course with both 'double award' and triple award' named.
