Tips on how to succeed in biology

 

  • Studying Biology can get frustrating at times because there is so much to learn in a short period of time. Always come prepared to class. Read over the material before the teacher goes over it so it's more of a review when you're in your biology class. That way, you'll have a jump start on the subject and be able to ask educated questions in class if you don't understand something your biology teacher says.
  • Try to spend between 4-6 hours a week on your own reviewing your Biology material. Spending 1 hour a day is much better than spending 2 or 3 hours in two days. You'll remember the material a lot better, it wont get boring as fast, which means you are less likely to get frustrated.
  • Spend time reviewing your notes from biology class and supplement that with the book after the lecture from your teacher. That should be the third time you've looked at the material so it should be pretty easy to understand the material at this point.
  • One of the biggest mistakes students make when trying to study biology is the focus too much on just memorizing and not really understanding what the material means. Get an overall understanding of the subject matter at hand. Understand why the heart works the way it does, as opposed to just memorizing what it does. That way, you memorize less, but are able to do more because you can apply the core knowledge you have when trying to work through biology problems.
  • A week before the test is not when you should start studying. Cramming for biology doesn't work for most students so stay on top of the material throughout the semester. If you decide to cram, you may get very stressed which will cause you to study in much more inefficient manner. Make flash cards as you learn the material and go over them periodically. You can also work on flash cards with your friends. It's a much less frustrating study method than cramming a few days before the exam.
