    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend it because you learn a lot of beneficial things.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course was the pedigree because you learned that it was common for relatives to get married and have children.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the book every night, ask the professor for help early on in the lesson, and to review your notes you were frantically writing so you can remember what you wrote.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    A fantastic teacher who will help you with any need in order to make sure you succeed.

    Course highlights:

    Learning all the facets of basic biology came to be incredibly useful in order to understand why many things in life occur. Labs that force you to work through and understand what is going on help with critical thinking. Tests on material that has actually been covered and will make sense as long as the textbook is read. I learned how biology functions throughout the world and about the processes that drive biology.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure to read and study the textbook often and well otherwise the course will not make sense as the lectures will not cover absolutely everything. Make sure to have a notebook to take notes with and add to them after reading the textbook.

    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.
