Bioethics is a new topic on the rules. How much / indepth do you think it'll be? Most bio books only briefly mention the topic in the chapter for bioengineering.

I'd say it would be in pretty much no depth until May 20-22.

If you can, try to get an AP Biology book, like the first 10 or 11 chapters are relevant to what you need to know (with the exception of the first like 3 Chapters). Also, try to focus on Biochemistry. For example, a lot of the tests I have taken involve interpreting graphs of Enzyme activity. Don't get into Genetics, look at the rules and learn as much as you can about everything listed.

Hope this helps.

Hi , I am a new member of forum. Would a newcomer be warmly welcome here? Good day you guys!!!

On one of my last invitational tests, it listed a series of DNA sequences and asked which was the most stable. How do you tell if a sequence is stable? There were no issues in matching base pairs or stuff like that.

Go to the test exchange, that's where any tests will be if people have them.

Hello, I went to the test exchange and went over the virginia practice test but i can't seem to find an answer key. Does anyone here know a link to it? Or perhaps a way to get to on the site that i missed? It would be really helpful for me so if someone gets a chance it would be greatly appreciated, thanks!!

That cell diagram was messed up. It didn't tell us the maximum score. bullshi.

lol. the ones with most triple hydrogen bonds is most stable. aka. guanine-cytosine pairs. i can't wait to beat wayzata at states. their cheap invitationals test pigeon me off.

Yeah, I just found that out. I tried actually reading the AP Bio book and I learned a few things. Who knew? I'm wondering what school you are from, Ostonzi, since I didn't know anyone from around us was on the forums.

Hello :)

It will be my first time doing the Cell Biology event next year at Regionals in NYC. I really want to do well and I'm taking AP BIO now (junior year). What textbooks/books/sites did you guys read to to prepare for this event? I have a copy of Campbell and Reece for AP Bio. Also, do you guys have any general tips for studying biology and doing well on the cell biology event?

Thanks!
