This class was tough.
This course was AP and it was eye opening to me. It showed me what I knew and what I needed to work on. Overall, it was a good course although I didn't do as well. It's really fast paced and if you're a science nerd, you'll love it. It's hands on and there's lots of student interaction. The teacher lets students run the class so they can get the most out of it.
I learned a lot. But like I said, it also showed me what I needed to work on. From this course, I learned better study skills and better participation skills. I learned that science is learned more effectively through how you apply your prior knowledge as well as new knowledge. Old information is never really "old"- you still need it because it will come up in later lessons. All concepts are tied together in some way so you're never really learning something completely new.

Advice for students:
Always make sure you do the homework. It's crucial to not only your grade but to your understanding of the lesson being taught. Doing the homework to the best of your ability helps determine if you're ready for the term test. If you're not ready, it gives you time to ask questions before the day of the test arrives. Also, always ask questions when you're confused. Honestly, that is the best way to learn in that class--by bombarding the teacher with questions.
