What I would highlight Instructor stutters and has huge gaps between words sometimes, which can be very distracting as well as annoying. The content is exactly what we do in the Canadian grade 12 biology. The videos are very informative, but the quizzes and tests are not challenging and difficult enough. There are also not enough questions for the quizzes and tests. The only problem with the course was the instructor, as said before. I'm taking the archived course on edX currently, and there was a 10 second type gap between 2 words in one of the videos. It is very annoying to listen to.

Course programme

Preparing for the AP Biology exam requires a deep understanding of many different topics in biology as well as an understanding of the format of the AP exam and the types of questions it asks. This course is Part 2 of the AP Biology series designed to prepare you for the AP Biology exam.  In Part 2, you will explore genes and learn how information is passed from one generation to the next. You will look at the molecular level of genetics as well as the bigger picture, learning how DNA holds the instructions to life. As you work through this course, you will find lecture videos taught by expert AP Biology teachers, practice multiple choice questions and free response questions that are similar to what you will encounter on the AP exam and tutorial videos that show you step-by-step how to solve problems. By the end of the course, you will be prepared to take on the AP exam!
