೭੧(❛▿❛✿)੭೨ Everything you need to know to get an A in your class and a 5 on the exam ೭੧(❛▿❛✿)੭೨ Hi everyone! This series is great for anyone who is planning to take AP Biology next year. AP Biology covers a lot of material and is ranked as one of the hardest AP courses, so getting a head start on the material will definitely help you do well in the class and on the exam. The material covered in this series is based on the AP® Biology Course and Exam Description from College Board: This will be a year-long course covering all 8 units of AP Biology, starting in September and ending in May. The AP Biology exam this year will take place on May 16th, at 12:00 PM. Sessions will take place weekly on Fridays at 7:00 PM EST, and there will be practice AP sessions and office hours sprinkled throughout the week (since I've already reached the maximum number of sessions in this series, I will create separate sessions for these and send the links to register in the group chat). I will also provide optional practice questions/homework to help grasp the concepts for each unit in the series group chat. We will be covering the content for all 8 units of AP Biology: - Unit 1: Chemistry of Life (8%–11% of exam score) - Unit 2: Cell Structure and Function (10%–13% of exam score) - Unit 3: Cellular Energetics (12%–16% of exam score) - Unit 4: Cell Communication and Cell Cycle (10%–15% of exam score) - Unit 5: Heredity (8%-11% of exam score) - Unit 6: Gene Expression and Regulation (12%-16% of exam score) - Unit 7: Natural Selection (13%-20% of exam score) - Unit 8: Ecology (10%-15% of exam score) Note: Although I've listed what we are going to cover in each session in the session descriptions, it's just an estimate on how long I will take for each unit and may change. Below are some resources to help you prepare for the AP Biology exam: - Campbell Biology (textbook): I mainly used this resource to study for the AP Biology exam. There are many editions of this textbook (I personally used the 11th edition), but they all cover the content tested on the AP Biology exam. - Khan Academy: - Fiveable: - Amoeba Sisters (YouTube channel): - Crash Course Biology: - Bozeman Science: - (note: this site has a lot of great AP Biology practice questions but requires a paid subscription in order to use the resource) How I studied for AP Biology: I learned most of the content covered by reading and taking notes from the Campbell biology textbook. I also learned through class lectures and watching YouTube videos on topics that I was confused about. I reviewed for the AP exam by using the Princeton AP Biology review book and by taking a lot of practice tests. I took this course two years ago, scored a 5 on the AP exam, and have been tutoring other students at my school on AP Biology since then. I also took high school biology three years ago and IB Biology HL (year 2 of IB Biology) last year. Also, if you are unable to make the session times, please let me know! I can't change the times because many other learners have registered, but I'd be more than happy to schedule a makeup session with you. Additionally, if you need any help with biology homework, feel free to send me a chat and I will do my best to help you. Thank you, and I look forward to teaching you!:)


No attendance policy!:) Come to whatever sessions you need. If you are unable to make the time, feel free to come to one of my office hours to catch up. During office hours, I can also help you with your AP Biology homework or explain any other topic in AP Biology (does not have to be about the unit that we are on).
