    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend AP Biology because it has allowed me to think in ways I have never before. My teachers takes concepts such a photosynthesis or cellular respiration that we have been learning about since we were little and puts a whole new emphasis on how the processes work and occur within the cells. I have had to expand my mind and think about more than just the surface level of the concepts. AP Biology has also pushed me to work harder. Most of the concepts of the course do not make sense immediately and take time and effort to understand. Diligently studying notes, handouts, and worksheets, brings about a clearer understanding of the concepts and allows for a more thorough analysis when answering the free response questions and even the multiple choice.

    Course highlights:

    The best part of taking this class was diving deeper into concepts that you learn about from the time you were in middle school. In middle school, you learn that photosynthesis occurs in the chloroplasts in the cell, but in AP Biology you learn that so much is going on to transform sunlight and carbon dioxide into sugar and oxygen. The labs in this class allow for a deeper understanding of the content and the ability to apply the concepts to more than just the free response questions and the multiple choice. This class has taught me more than just biology. I have learned the importance of asking questions, studying diligently, and working hard. AP Biology is not an easy class. It requires effort and hard work.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    The best way to succeed in AP Biology is to study nightly. Begin studying the first day of the unit. This is the best way to ensure that the content and concepts will stick and you will be prepared when test day comes. Ask questions. Ask your teacher. Ask classmates. Ask former students. Asking questions allows you to gain a better understanding and chances are someone else has the same question you do.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    As difficult as this course was, it opened the doors to a lot more critical thinking and connecting across concepts than I had ever done before in my school career. AP Bio had a fascinating way of tying together the various and extensive amount of details we had to cover throughout the year into the grander picture of the Big Idea we were covering at the time. More than just memorizing details of a certain concept, we were able to understand the why behind many of the biological processes occurring at both macro- and micro-scales, making us much more able to ask the critical questions that actually aided us in learning rather than memorizing in the course.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course (in the year I took it) was the sheer rigor of the course, while ironically enough it still remains one of the best classes I took in high school. We would never stop at simply 'learning' the concepts, but rather spend extensive amounts of time in our inquiry labs and investigations trying to understand why things occurred the way they did. Lectures were not just a series of details to memorize, but full-on discussions of how the biological processes both visible and invisible to us were so crucial in every aspect of our lives. They often involved series of critical questions and long-standing discussions, which actually felt like I was learning towards the long run rather than for a temporary period.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Be prepare to do an intense amount of work. This is not a course you can skim by and get through, and it requires a significant amount of work outside of school. If you don't have the time to commit to it, it can be exceptionally hard. Otherwise, make the best of it and use it to learn a lot more about biology than you can ever imagine.
