Scared of Taking AP Biology/College Biology?

What of the Following Fields of Science was the Hardest For You?

Taking Biology course in college is just like retaking your high school Biology. Even though every other day maybe laboratory, just follow directions and you'll be fine!

Here are some tips that might be useful (with other subjects too?):

  • Browse or search about biology a week before the classes start
  • Now first things first = where did your last biology started with? (e.g. What is biology? eukaryote? Prokaryote?)
  • Be on time on the first day!
  • See if you still have your previous books or notes on the course
  • Make sure you pay attention and understand what the teacher is saying (Trick: Try making an explanation for yourself rather than taking in all of your teacher's explanation to heart. You must know why and how that became the explanation and not just because it came from your teacher!)
  • During lab: Browse through the things that are in there. (e.g. if there are goggles, aprons, gloves, equipments) 
  • Do not hurry! And stay alert! Also, don't talk too much. 
  • Be observant and take notes (write even the slightest thing that occur, which may have something to do with the lesson)
  • If working in group or partner, one must do the dissecting or observing, in short, on will do all the work, nearly all the work, while one will take the notes. It will be hard for you if you will be the one dissecting and taking notes at the same time. Removing and putting on your dirty gloves just to write is pain
  • Do not ever, ever, underestimate your class. Even if you have taken it before and get an A or a B, you must pay attention to your teacher since she will be adding more information into your storage area.

 Note: A recent teacher of mine did not gave us a direction paper. The reason? She told us to think about what processed should we do to test the hypothesis. Your teacher might make this to. (just want you to know)
