studyholls: The long-awaited Biology masterpost is finally…

The long-awaited Biology masterpost is finally here!! I am so excited to share this post with you as a few of you guys have been asking for it, and because Biology is my absolute favorite subject. Here goes nothing!!

STUDYING BIOLOGY AND TAKING NOTES

my post on study advice

MY ADVICE

In class: Pay attention to your professor/teacher, ask lots and lots of questions, and take avid notes! It’s one thing to listen, and a totally different thing to remember. Your notes will help you retain all of the information you are taking in! If you can, stay after school whenever you need help with a certain topic. My bio teacher holds after-school tutorials that help so much, and I would totally recommend using this resource if it’s available to you.

At home: Rewrite your notes; watch tutorials, videos, and models online to get a better understanding of the lesson you are learning; and try teaching the concept you are learning to a family member.

MY FAVORITE RESOURCES

Mcgraw Hill: Great animations and mini quizzes

Khan Academy: LIFE SAVERRRRRRR!!! Goes into so much depth on topics, but very easy to understand.

Crash Course: Not only funny, but also dumbed down for easy understanding

Quizlet: Quiz yourself on whole topics while on the go!!

Sciencemusicvideos YouTube Channel: Super cheesy, but such a great resource. The songs are very catchy and not too hard to learn!

Well, I guess that’s about it!! If you guys want another masterpost, let me know!! (Also let me know if I missed a topic, and I will make sure I add it ASAP)
