Hi guys. I'm an incoming first-year at Brown and need to make a pretty important decision before September 1. I received a score of 5 on the AP bio test and an SAT II bio score in the upper 700's, but all these scores were freshman year scores. And while I got an A+ for the year in an advanced bio course...this also happened in freshman year. So...it's been a while.
I looked at some old Bio 0200 exams, and the questions seemed more than manageable to me (with some simple review). In fact, many of the questions seemed similar to the ones I encountered in freshman year of HS. I don't want to take a course that isn't worth my money; I'm looking for a challenging/rewarding bio course, and I'm worried that intro bio would not fulfill my expectations (although I'd probably learn a lot).
Would I be able to take a more advanced bio course this year (i.e. not take Ken Miller's intro bio course) and still be able to (re)learn the topics covered in intro bio? Has anybody faced this situation of mine? What would you current students/alumni suggest?
