   Coursework Lifelines:
iology is a good class - some of the concepts are challenging, but the material is really interesting if you keep an open mind.  Important note: If you are going for your BSN, pay special attention to this class - you'll be taking microbiology next and it will be building on what you have already learned.  Trust me - micro will make your biology class look like a walk in the park.  Get the core concepts down in biology to save yourself headaches down the line.

To help you out, we've scouted some great internet resources you can use to supplement your studies:

Our very own Biology Self-Test
This is a small test - good for the first unit of your biology course.  It's one of the first tests we created, so it doesn't have the bells and whistles (no nifty multiple-choice quiz program, no online grading) - but it's functional and a good place to start.

This online tutorial was developed by my biology teacher, Dr. Paul Decelles.  It covers the major concepts without getting lost in the details, including basic chemistry, biochemistry, metabolism, photosynthesis, cellular respiration, cell reproduction/life cycles, protein synthesis and control of gene expression.  It's a comprehensive guide with a good dose of humor - a great resource!

This online tutorial covers is broken out into four modules: molecules and cells, heredity and evolution, diversity and populations,and the structure and function of plants and animals.  Also includes links to other free tutorials online.


Biology Help Cards feature outlines, key terms, charts, formulas, definitions and diagrams that you'll need for biology success. Print it out, and you've got a handy portable biology guide that you can use anytime, anywhere.

More resources will be added as we find them.  If you know of a great online resource for biology,
