CLEP Biology


CLEP Biology

Biology of Life is designed to be taught at an entry college-level biology course. The course will be designed to give students a college-like lecture feel, while still having the close relationship with teachers and classmates of high school. The course has two main goals: 1) have this be a class that will allow students to get used to a college-like course and 2) prepare the students for the CLEP exam which can earn the students up to six college credits. It may be to your advantage to view the CLEP Biology website to make sure you are aware of what will be covered, expected, and completed throughout our time together. I have also included the syllabus for the course.

Study Documents for the CLEP Exam
This interactive site is designed to give you and idea of what the CLEP will be like. It is the British version, so there could be some goofy spellings, but content is good. When you submit it will give you feedback. Great practice. http://www.bbc.co.uk/scotland/learning/bitesize/higher/biology/
