    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    If you are interested in medicine or any career in the science field, taking AP Biology in high school would be a great backbone to the more rigorous biology classes you will be required to take in college. This class covers most of the material needed to get a basic, but vast understanding of biological systems, plants, ecosystems, evolution, genetics, and cells to prepare you well for higher-level biology classes.

    Course highlights:

    I learned many new lab skills and techniques, such as gel electrophoresis and bacteria cultures that I know I will be required to do in the future. Although lab reports were time consuming, getting into the practice of formal reports will prepare you for college labs. I also learned the details behind biological systems, plants, ecosystems, evolution, genetics, biochemistry, and cells over the course of the year.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would recommend completing all of the assignments diligently and with care. Much of the material on the test is covered in the activities we do in class, since hardly any lectures are given. Most of the information needed to complete the assignments can be googled, but it is worth your time to read the textbook and learn from what the AP curriculum requires so you know the exact level of understanding you are required to know. I would also advise you to complete all the study guides as a good way to review for the exams and to summarize the unit. Applying biological knowledge is a more important skill in this class than just pure memorization.

    Course Overview:

    This class is so interesting and fun. The material is applicable to the life of the students and the information is palpable to all.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course is the dissections and the labs. I have learned everything from cellular bio to how plants work and their behaviors. This is a great class for all.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do all of the homework by yourself and not in a group. Group work doesn't benefit you as well as it does to do the work individually

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend this class because it is fun and interesting to many people. The class is often self-work time, so if you are a motivated student to get things done on your own and using your time how you want, this is a good class for you. If you are not great at researching on your own and understanding by reading and watching videos, then this class might not be for you.

    Course highlights:

    Highlights of this course are learning about hormones in the human body, evolution, and plant growth. Many labs are included in this course.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    In order to succeed, you will need to be self motivated and get your work done in class. Most days, as long as your work during class, you can get the work done in class and not have homework. I
