    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This is a pretty important course if you want to graduate. It gives you a lab science, which is required, and it also is a solid AP course to take. Colleges look at this course as challenging and they will reward you for taking it.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight had to be the pig dissection at the end of the year. Having to learn all of the parts of a pig's body and knowing how to dissect it is a difficult thing to do, but it is really interesting once you learn more about it. I would highly recommend this course.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the book a lot. Memorize the pictures, not just the words in the textbook. Study with a friend, becaue that always helped me to learn the concepts better.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    AP Biology is tough! It really is a struggle. Are you up for the challenge? I would recommend it only because I feel that it is a necessary course to take in your high school career. It is a tough AP that colleges value highly, but if you're focused enough and stay on top of your studying, you should do fine. The main piece of advice on this class that I would give is to learn and understand the concepts, rather than memorizing key vocab words. The concepts are what the class mainly focuses on, not what the vocab words mean.

    Course highlights:

    The biggest highlight was the pig dissection at the end of the year. Pigs share a lot of the same body parts as humans, so it was really interesting to learn how the body operates. I learned so much about the anatomy of humans and how everything connects. Most importantly, this class taught me great study habits that I will carry through my entire life.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Study hard and study the concepts, not the key words. The amount of work before the test (packets, study guides, homework) sometimes takes even longer than studying. Spread the work for this class out, and don't wait until the last minute to finish the assignments.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    The course itself is a great course to prepare you for the rigors of college, but it isn't a particularly interesting course, and it is more about memorization than actually learning the concepts.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of the course had to be the end of year, because of the pig dissection. We learned all about the body parts in the pig, and most of them were also in the human body.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Study hard and make sure that you know the concepts forwards and backwards. The teacher will get very specific with the questions that they ask, so make sure that you read carefully. Remember, even the most minute details might appear on the test.
