									                            Final Exam/AP Exam Review

Suggestions for Studying:

   1. Cliff’s AP Reading. Anything in any of the chapters in the Cliff’s AP Guide could potentially
      appear on the AP exam. I would probably focus on the material we have covered, however. One of
      the best ways to use this book, in my opinion, is to practice the questions at the end of each
      chapter. The answers are at the ends of the chapters as well (in case you forgot).

   2. Look back through the Multiple Choice questions I have given you throughout the year. (MT#1,
      #2, #3, #4, Body Systems, and Ecology).

   3. Look back through the notes pertaining to the topics you found to be most difficult.

   4. Look through the Review worksheets (#1-8).

   5. Look through the Lab Review worksheets (AP Labs 1-12). Don’t forget that there is a link to Lab
      Bench on www.classjump.com/mrstidermanapbiology. Just look toward the top of the homepage.
      Lab Bench is a very useful tool to help review any of the 12 AP labs. There are short quizzes at the
      end of each lab as well as helpful animations.

   6. Look through the list of activities from you Online textbook I have provided on this sheet. Pick
      and choose the ones you need to help you study. I would suggest going through ALL of the
      activities pertaining to Systems of the Body, Animal Development, and Ecology.

   7. You might also try looking back through the bell questions given throughout the year. I usually
      ask questions pertaining to important, but basic concepts.

   8. Go through the Greed cards again (MT #1-4 are still posted on classjump under “Downloads”).
      You can also access the “Final Greed” game which covers: Inverts/Verts, Body Systems, and

   9. Look through past essays found on the AP Central website (also a link on our Classjump page). I
      would recommend looking through the essays asked over the past 10 years. Follow the directions
      found on Classjump.

   10. Lastly, make sure you take/finish all practice exams given so that you get a feel for how you are
   going to perform on your final exam and/or the AP Exam. Use only the time allotted. I will let you
   know when you need to take practice exams.
