Self study AP Bio?

<p>So since my school doesn't offer AP biology I am pretty sure I want to self study it. One question I have, though, is how do I fulfill the lab requirement?</p>

<p>You could of tried posting this in the AP forum.</p>

<p>I honestly don't know this one. Would you have to do the labs? Is there any reason you'd need to do them for the AP exam?</p>

<p>I think something on the collegeboard website said something about part of the ap exam being on designing your own experiments and questions about labs</p>

<p>You don't have to do any labs for the test. There are some questions on lab-related things, but they are generally just about reading graphs and are very straightforward. </p>

<p>Buy Cliff's AP Biology and self-study from there. If you know the stuff, you'll get an easy 5.</p>

<p>Yeah that's the book I'm getting</p>

<p>Do you think I could buy my own supplies and do the labs on my own that are described in the Collegeboard description?</p>

<p>Not realistically; it wouldn't help you on the test anyways. Cliff's covers all you need to know about the labs.</p>

<p>How hard is the exam?</p>

<p>There is a lot of material, but you don't have to know it very well to get a 5, as the curve is very generous. If you read through Cliff's twice and have a decent memory, you will get 5 with no trouble.</p>

<p>OK BIOVBALL. let me restate something that applies to all AP exams.</p>

<p>THERE IS NO NEED TO DO ANY LABS OR BE FAMILIAR WITH ANY LABS FOR ANY AP EXAM period.</p>

<p>The AP sciences difficulty curve is something like this, Envsci<Bio<Chem<Physics B<Physics C</p>

<p>Thanks silverturtle and ilikeyou.</p>
