Post Reply Biology (Could use help getting a better studying method...)

So...

I'm struggling to survive in biology.

And I've never really understood the information even with reading it.

Currently I've been working on dna and genetics and I haven't understood ANY of the content.

Is there any way of studying that will be better and help understand biology?

You've got to like it first :3 (in my opinion) I'm sucks at giving advice DX

DNA and genetics are interesting topic <3

Trust me(some random guy from the internet) but Biology isn't rocket science. Everything happens for a reason and the fields of Chemistry and Biology explain those reasons.

When taking BIO 102 and A&P classes last year, I found that quizlet.com provides a lot of help, study materials and (if you have an online class) the answers for a lot of tests

I suppose it'd help to know - what kinds of problems specifically are you running into? I mean, what's the first part you don't understand? DNA and genetics covers a huge area of possibilities! The base pairs, how it's replicated, how inheritance and mutations work.. lots of stuff to play in, but it's all really interesting once you get a handhold in there.

I had the same problem. Switch to another subject or study and enough so you get by until you can drop it.

I took two biology classes last year, one being cellular biology and I struggled a lot. But I made it through by using a lot of flash cards, drawing diagrams/rewriting notes. I also really liked using acronyms to remember long processes or lists of information. Basically though everything has an answer in biology you just have to figure out ways to make the information click.
