    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course to everyone interested in biology. The teacher presents the information very well. We learned in a variety of manners, from watching digestion movies to lectures to drawing out photosynthesis. I found this class to be very interesting because of the material, but the teacher also presents everything in a interesting, easy to understand manner. The teacher was willing to help any student who had issues or didn't understand the material. The class prepared me well for the AP, but the nightly reading took a while.

    Course highlights:

    I think the labs and notes on biological systems were the highlights of the course. I was able to learn hands-on, which solidified my knowledge. It was a very fun course. I also learned time management. I had to learn to balance my biology reading with all my other AP classes that I took. From this class, I learned how I best study. I found that condensing my notes into a single sheet study guide and reviewing that helped me do well on the tests. Besides the material, this class taught me practical life skills.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would recommend that the students read the textbook. Many students in my class didn't keep up with the reading because they thought that the lecture notes were enough. Though I never used my reading notes to study from, it solidified my knowledge of the information that we learned in class. If you are interested in biology and willing to put in a lot of effort, I would recommend AP biology.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I loved this class because I am fascinated by anatomy and physiology and our teacher was amazing! This class consisted of lectures, hands on activities, and presentations, so it was never boring. The lectures were easy to follow, and we had activities like easy labs or case studies which helped us understand the material.

    Course highlights:

    We managed to cover all the systems of the human body over the course of the year. My favorite part was the case studies, where we were given a patient with a problem relating to the system we just learned about and our job was to correctly diagnose them. Also, we spend a month in the spring semester dissecting a mink, and the hands on approach really helped with our understanding of the muscles.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take good notes in class, as these are most helpful when you are studying for the test. Also, if you put in the work, you will do well!

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Through this course, I was able to learn a lot about not only the subject, but about myself as a student and how to develop study skills and a study plan that worked for me.

    Course highlights:

    While we learned about biology in all aspects of life, I specifically learned a lot and enjoyed learning about the human body the most. We spent a lot of time focusing on details of how the body works on a microscopic level and the specific rolls of each important cell/ structure.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    This class is very rigorous, and requires a lot of dedication. In order to succeed, it is important to develop a new study routine and perfect your study habits. Each student has different methods to tackling the course load and synthesizing the information, and it may take a few weeks to perfect how you study- so don't get discouraged! If you are struggling, talk to your teacher about a new way to approach the material. Also, there are a lot of useful online resources!
