    Arrow A synonym for "account"

    In the name of the Merciful Allah,
    Please give me a synonym for the word account according to this quote: The Handbook of intelligence complements the Encyclopedia of Human Intelligence that I edited in that it provides a topical rather that an alphabetical account of topics in human intelligence.
    Another question, shouldn't the writer use on or about instead of in before human intelligence, the latter?

    Re: A synonym for "account"

    Account in the context is record or description.
    Encyclopedia of a subject, not encyclopedia in a subject.
    Topics on a subject, not topic in a subject.

    not a teacher
