First Things First… Tomorrow we are covering chapter 2. This is a review of chemistry—please make sure you read the chapter. You will be responsible for this chapter on the first midterm exam. You will be quizzed tomorrow (Tuesday) on your understanding of chapter 2. On your exam you will be responsible for the material found in my “lecture notes” covering that chapter. To view lecture notes go to: www.phage.org/lectures Let me know how I may be able to improve the above page so that it may be more usable.

Doing Well in Biology 113 Today I will provide a general overview on what it takes to do well in this course. Note that these concepts are applicable to more than just Biology 113. They also have a “Duh” quality to them, but they do need to be stated explicitly lest you approach the first exam thinking otherwise. To do well, you need to have at least one of the following qualities: You need to have a really great memory, or You need to put in a great deal of time, or You need to have taken the time to learn from your previous biology classes (especially as presented by the text versus as required by the instructor), or You need to enjoy the material, i.e., to the point where you are willing to study enthusiastically. Prepared or otherwise, it also wouldn’t be such a bad thing for you to not freak out come exam time.

Surviving Bio 113 You can study anything you like, but ultimately the information in the lecture notes is (mostly) what you need to know for exams (i.e., see www.phage.org/lectures) . Study your lecture notes daily. Memorize them.
