This series is the equivalent of a college introductory biology course and will prepare students to pass the AP Biology exam. Even though these courses present college-level work, there are no prerequisites. Students who are willing to commit time and effort in completing both courses in the series will experience success in the course and in taking the AP Biology exam. The instructor is an award-winning, AP-certified teacher. This is the first course in a two-part Advanced Placement Biology series (AP BIO 059 and AP BIO 060).
