Question:I'm making a 72(progress report grade) in Biology Pre-Ap but I really want to bring it up to a B+ or preferably an A. I have worked so hard in that class but the problem is the test he gives us. We are now doing an animal kingdom notebook project and we are allowed to use our notes, but when it is test time, it's not easy looking through the whole notebook secton in less than 50 mins on a 40-50 question test. Please, what are some advice to help me prepare better on my test. I write my notes in a sub-divided format( I forgot what the format is called) so they are very organized. I don't know, I don't think I study enough but I really want to do well on my next test and this six weels report card. Please help(Tips!!, are welcome)

p.s I have one week because after this week is final exams and I would like some tips to prepare for the biology exam...
Answers:It is good you can use your notes, but don't use them as a crutch. I home schooled my daughter and she always did well on the animal kingdom because she loves animals. Math went in one ear and out the other. To this day, she has problems with math. It is not that she can't do it, it is her attitude toward it. My point, hit the books and fall in love with the subject. I know it sounds hard, but you are seeing the animals a seperate. In the larger picture, they are a part of us. Find out how. My husband and I went to 'The Bodies Exhibit' when we were in Vegas. He didn't want to go at first, but then he changed his thinking about it and enjoyed it. It had a bunch of bodies sliced in different ways so you can see inside the human body, in case you never heard of it. You would be surprised how some parts of our inner bodies look like different fish and animals. It was amazing. Anyway, attitude is key. Once you make the decision to really know the subject, you will be more aware of thing you wouldn't have noticed before. Just learning it for a test will only get you so far. Learning to have an understanding and really seeing the subject will give you a greater understanding and then you will be able to mark references that will take you quicker to areas with facts that will be usable on your test. Use those post it tabs to help you move quicker. I hope I helped you. Good luck.
Question:1. An organism s physical appearance is its __________
2. The different forms of a gene are called __________
3. Like animals, animal-like protists are __________
4. Why are sex-linked traits more common in males than in females?
All alleles on the X chromosome are dominant.
All alleles on the Y chromosome are recessive.
A recessive allele on the X chromosome will always produce the trait in a male.
Any allele on the Y chromosome will be codominant with the matching allele on the X chromosome.
5. What is a mutation?
any change that is harmful to an organism
any change in a gene or chromosome
any change that is helpful to an organism
any change in the phenotype of a cell
Answers:Ok it has been a while since I've taken Bio but Im 99% sure of these answers
4. A recessive allele on the X chromosome will always produce the trait in a male
5. any change in a gene or chromosome
Question:The diffusion of water across the cell membrane is called:
C. Active Transport
The cell/plasma membrane contains several biomolecules. Which is most abundant in the bilayer?
B. Nucleic acids
In Active Transport, molecules must cross the concentration gradient. In which direction would the molecules be moving?
A. Up the Concentration Gradient
B. Down the Concentration Gradient
C. No Net Movement in the Concentration Gradient
D. Stays in the same Concentration Gradient
The following are all types of Passive Transport EXCEPT:
B. Facilitated Diffusion
C. Ion Pumps
D. Simple Diffusion
Bacterial cells are prokaryotic.
Calculate the surface to volume ratio of a 6 sided plant cell whose length = 3mm, width=3mm and heigth=3mm.
Surface Area (mm^2) = Length x Width x # of sides
Volume (mm^3) = Length x Width x Height
Surface to Volume Ratio = Surface Area/Volume A. 3:3
Question:1. an organism that can make organic molecules from inorganic molecules; a photosynthetic or chemosynthetic aoutotroph that serves as the basic food source in an ecosystem
2. the process by which gaseous nitrogen is converted into ammonia, a compound that organisms can use to make amino acids and other nitrogen containing organic molecules
3. the pathway of energy transfer through various stages as a result of the feeding patterns of a series of organisms
4. the place where an organism usually lives
5. a group of various species that live in the same habitat and interact with eachother
6. an environmental factor that is not associated with the activities of living organisms
7. a diagram that shows the feeding relationships between organsisms in an ecosystem
8. the replacement of one type of community by another at a single location over a period of time
9. the process by which plants release water vapor into the air through stomato; also the release of water vapor into the air by other organisms
10. a triangular diagram that shows an ecosystem's loss of energy, which results as energy passes through the ecosystems food chain
11. the variety of organisms in a given area, the genetic variation within a population, the variety of species in a community
12. an organism that eats only plants
13. a group of organisms in the same species that live in a specific geographical area and interbreed
14. an organism that eats both plants and animals
15. an organism that feeds by breaking down organic matter from dead organisms; examples include bacteria and fungi
16. an animal that eats other animals
17. organic matter that can be a source of energy; the total mass of the organisms in a given area
an environmental factor that is associated with or results from the activities of living organisms
18. an organism that eats other organisms or organic matter instead of producung its own nutrients or obtaining nutrients from inorganic sources.
