Where we fall short
Where we fall short….

The places where the SAT may go that we have not covered in Bio H are:

Classification specifics- you will need more familiarity with the Kingdoms and, more importantly, with the phyla within each kingdom.

Review the glands and hormones- many hormones in the book that we did NOT examine

Review vitamins and minerals

Population Genetics- Hardy Weinberg

Aquatic Biomes- we mainly cover terrestrial ones

If you have time, go through the glossary in the back of the review book

Where to focus your studying
Where to focus your studying

Look through the sections where we fall short, and review some of the HARD parts like:


Respiration (aerobic and anaerobic)



DNA Structure and Function

Protein Synthesis

Sat ii test strategies
SAT II Test Strategies

Don’t focus on the details too much. You need big picture info mostly.

Answer each known question first. Circle the ENTIRE question on those you skip.

Go back to the hard questions and think about them. If you can eliminate at least 2 wrong answers, it is to your advantage to guess.

If you have no idea, leave the question blank and move on (it is a disadvantage to guess).

More Test Taking Strategies

Watch out for wording. Remember that there are different ways to ask the same question (monoploid vs. haploid, etc.)

Never make a choice before reading through and understanding what the question is asking.

Relax. Take a breath. The fate of the world is NOT riding on this one test.
