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 3 of our AP Biology series designed to prepare you for the AP Biology exam.  In Part 3, you will explore the idea that the process of evolution drives the diversity and unity of life. You will examine how changes in the genetic makeup of a population happen over time and how these changes drive evolution and create diversity. 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!   This course is authorized as an Advanced Placement® (AP®) course by the AP Course Audit.
