to the SAT II Biology
The key to doing
well on the SAT II Biology test is simple: be really good at biology.
But it might surprise you to know that the biology whiz who spends
the week before taking the SAT II cramming on the nuances of mitochondrial
DNA and the physiological role of the amygdala probably won’t fare
any better on the test than the average student who reviews this
book carefully. Why? Because the SAT II Biology doesn’t cover mitochondrial
DNA or the amygdala.
Happy? Good. In this chapter we’ll tell you precisely
what the SAT II Biology will cover, how the test
breaks down, and what format the questions will take. Take this
information to heart and base your study plan around it. There’s
no use studying topics you won’t be tested on, or spending countless
hours studying bacterial diversity while ignoring meiosis, which
is covered far more extensively by the test.
