Chapter 3: Preface
It won't be the most fun you've ever had.
You may learn a lot from this book if you let yourself.
It is written in a way that will be pleasing to your eyes and brain, and contains the major concepts and ideas that you have been exposed to in your AP Biology classroom.
Many books on the market have the same information that you will find in this book.
We have approached the material in a different way.
We tried to make the book easy to understand.
A review book that is a total snoozer is something we have had to review for countless standardized tests.
The average reader could go 84 pages before falling asleep, because we had this book "snooze-tested" by more than five thousand students.
The average snooze time of the other review books was between 14 and 43 pages.
We made up the statistics.
154,076 students took the AP exam and were asked how they prepared for it.
They said which study techniques were most helpful to them and which topics were vital to success on the test.
The students' comments and tips are written in the margins of the book.
These people know what they are talking about so pay attention to their comments.
They may have some useful advice after taking this test.
We don't want you to think that you don't need to study to do well on the exam.
You will have to prepare a bit.
The book will walk you through the process in a painless way.
You can practice applying the material you just read by using the study questions at the end of each chapter.
You can use the study tips listed in Step 3 to remember the material.
As the exam approaches, take the two practice tests in Step 5 to see how well the information is sinking in.
It's time to start studying.
In Step 1 of the book, set up your study program.
Before you start the review process, take the diagnostic test in Step 2 and look through the answers and explanations to see where you stand.
The hints and strategies in Step 3 may help you digest the information that comes at you in Step 4.
We suggest that you kick back, relax, grab yourself a comfortable seat, and dig in.
There is a lot to learn.
