    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    AP Biology was a great course and I was able to learn a lot about genetics, ecology, and cellular processes. I was also able to improve socially as I was required to speak and work with others and express what I thought and felt in a group. The class also taught me to be independent at times, that I would have to do work outside of the class and to also inform my teacher if I did not understand something and to make sure that I did my asking for help or looking at other recourses.

    Course highlights:

    The teacher was wonderful. He made sure that the students understood the topics and also made sure that that students were thinking for themselves and not just relying on the teacher for help. The lessons were well paced and there were plenty of activities that helped in understanding the topics. In the timespan of 7 months I was able to learn about cells and their structures, their processes, genes, and ecology. But besides the topics I was able to learn to think for myself and not always rely on others. When I was to work in groups I learned to contribute and voice my opinions and knowledge.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    My advice would be to read and look at other recourses. A lot of the activities and lectures done in the class is in the readings. Sometimes you would have to look for other information outside of what was mentioned. But make sure that when the teacher informs you of an incoming test, you do not search for the answers and the it is the same for worksheets. You will not learn if do that. The only way you can would be to use your own mind and figure things out for yourself because no one else will.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class if you really want to continue with science in the future and plan to take this with your career.

    Course highlights:

    What I learned in AP Bio was the meaning of life and how everything we do in life basically leads back to biology.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    The one advice I would give to students considering this course is to really be focused, and actually learn to gain knowledge.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend it because although it is a tough course, you feel accomplished with the facts you learned.

    Course highlights:

    Genetics was my favorite chapter. I learned about epistatics which is when one gene is dominant over another.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    To read the chapter and take notes before entering class because it will help you understand the teacher better.
