    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Mrs. Barro really makes Biology concepts easier to grasp and the class prepares you big time for the AP test in May. The course might seem crazy, but keep in mind that it is an AP class after all. Mrs. Barro is funny and kind though so the class should be fun (-:

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course were definitely the models and the labs we did in class. The models, although tedious at first, help you learn and remember the processes. The labs give you a deeper understanding of the concepts you study.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    DO NOT PROCRATINATE ON YOUR NOTEBOOK!!!!!! It is a lot of work and if you procrastinate, your notebook will look like poop and you will regret it and hate yourself for procrastinating. Try your best to keep up because once you fall behind, it'll be hard for you to bounce back.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class is a great secondary course for those students who really love biology and want to further extend their knowledge of the subject

    Course highlights:

    I really liked the weekend labs because it put the information that we learned in the classroom to the test and we were able to learn about how real data plays out instead of just staring at numbers on a page.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    It isn't a very difficult class, but you have to make sure you stay on topic of your work. If you slack off on studying or doing your homework or taking notes, you could fall behind and be completely confused.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would highly recommend, as Mrs. Barro skillfully infuses fun into the rigor of AP Biology.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course came with the amazing coursework we did. From studying viruses in dolphins to reading about bacteria found in extreme conditions, this class did not fail to amaze me everyday.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take a lot of thorough notes and draw pictures and diagrams! The best way to know what's going on in the course is to actively participate and ask questions to clarify. The class is fast pace and you need to be involved and engaged everyday you're in there.
