Studying for Biology Exam 1 Being a kinesthetic learner, I learn better by doing some simple activities, which not only get me a good grade on my exam, but as well as help me to retain the information well beyond exam day. Here are some of the things I did in studying for the first biology exam.

I hope this is helpful!...

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
