    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class wholeheartedly to any Advanced Placement student who doesn't want their Senior Year science class to be math heavy. This class is primarily focused on comprehension and retention, so any student who excels in those areas will excel in this class. Students who excel in lab work and research projects will also be right at home in this class. However, I would qualify these recommendations with the warning that the class moves at a fairly fast pace, and covers many convoluted topics in a relatively short period of time, so any students who feel like they may not be able to keep up.

    Course highlights:

    While I cannot provide a true retrospective on this class, since I am still in the process of taking it, I can say that it has been a roller coaster ride so far. As I mentioned, the class moves pretty quickly, so we jump from on topic to another in just a few weeks. The frequent tests are a bit of a downer, but you get used to them very quickly. So far, we have learned about Biochemistry, Respiration, Photosynthesis, Cell Biology, Evolution, and many other smaller subtopics. I can't really say which of the mentioned topics I've enjoyed the most, since I've found them all to be almost universally interesting. Overall, the class is an intellectually stimulating romp that, for the grade level, will provide attendees with a comprehensive view of life on earth.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't just limit your studying to rereading your notes and looking back at the presentations. If you really want to succeed, test yourself on your knowledge, and rewrite/reorganize your notes in order to reinforce your knowledge. That is the single most important way you can excel in this class, given the huge amount of interconnected information you need to remember. Also, read your labs ahead of time so you can be ready for them, and alway make sure that you have everything you need each day. It is very easy to get left behind.
