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!

The Campbell and Reece book has a LOT of good information for this event. Last year, I picked up Cell Bio the day before Nationals (someone couldnt come, so we had to do her events), and I luckily brought my AP Bio book. It had a lot of stuff that was very useful, with good diagrams as well.
2009 events:
Fossils: 1st @ reg. 3rd @ states (stupid dinosaurs...) 5th @ nats.
Dynamic: 1st @ reg. 19thish @ states, 18th @ nats
Herpetology (NOT the study of herpes): NA
Enviro Chem: 39th @ states =(
Cell Bio: 9th @ reg. 18th @ nats
Remote: 6th @ states 3rd @ Nats
Ecology: 5th @ Nats

Hey so besides the general information about the cell cycle, order it goes in, what happens, etc. What all do we need to know concerning it? I know the rules have an emphasis on mitosis, but my real question is how in depth should we study it? I have most of the major proteins that help with the cell cycle down and yet i've seen questions on tests about specficics that not even the AP book covers. In a perfect world I'd be able to spend all my time on the cell cycle but obviously i can't and need to study other areas of cell as well. Any thoughts?

So, I have access to my state test, but it is just questions from various sites and from the Cambell Reece books. And it's 400-ish questions. Is it worth it to put up?
