Always Do the Reading
Many Small Assignments
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I would not recommend this course for anyone who is just looking for an additional 1.0 to boost their GPA. When I took this course, the teacher couldn't teach the AP to save his life. He was only good for regular or Honors Biology. I have been informed that, in the next year, a former physics teacher will be taking up this course. As good as that may seem, how do we know if this teacher is any better? Sorry, but all I remember from this course is unnecessary amounts work and boring lectures involving watching Khan Academy and online simulations about the chapters. I could honestly just do everything we did in this class at home....
The highlights of this course were probably the labs and the fetal pig dissection we did at the end of the year. What did I learn? I learned the basics of Biology when I could've been learning how to answer the AP free responses

Advice for students:
If you are really into Biology, or plan to take up a career involving Biology, then yeah, go ahead and take this course. However, if you are only taking AP Biology for the GPA boost, well, don't. When I took the class, I remember a lot of students had dropped the class because of the teacher and/or the workload.
