[h]Fill-in-the-blanks (“Hangman” style) AP Biology Review
AP Bio Vocabulary Review
We built this quiz you master the key terms and concepts in the AP Biology curriculum.
To use it, just register and start answering questions. We’ll test you with 1396 questions, and allow you to track your progress in answering them. If you want to, you can choose specific units and topics, but you’ll learn more if you take the hardest path: questions randomly drawn from the entire curriculum.
Whatever you choose, you’ll be served with 30 “hangman” style, fill-in-the-blanks questions, with each set working like an automated set of flashcards. If you get the answer right, the question comes off the deck. If you get it wrong, or use the “hint” button, the card will go to the back of the deck so you can try it again. When you finish, you get another set.
The strategy we’re using comes from the book Make it Stick, by Peter C. Brown, Henry L. Roediger III, Mark A. McDaniel. In a nutshell, it’s effortful learning that establishes long term memory. And effortful learning comes about by mixing up topics, and spacing out memory tasks. My hypothesis is that the more you’re on top of the vocabulary related to AP Biology, the better you’re going to be able to do on the kinds of problem solving questions you’ll face on the AP exam.
Almost all of the concepts come from the AP Biology Course and Exam Description. In a few cases, I’ve used other sources (such as Wikipedia) to gather the background information to help us put the questions together.
