    anyone else doing it this year? Just looked at the specimen paper on the SQA site and I have to say it looks a bit of a *****! Coming from someone who got an A(1) in Higher HumBio and is a bit of a bio sack Investigation should be alright though but it's a lot of work already. Hmm, what a fab year I'm going to have!

There's actually quite a few in my bio class, over 20 :s but hopefully some people should leave if they dont need it/do well in higher bio/human bio. I want the teacher to myself! lol, have you started planning your investigation yet?

    Oh, also, what are people using as textbooks this year? I have Campbell's Biology 6th edition, but obviously it's way too much to learn and a large part isn't relevant. Are most people going to be learning from notes given in class? I hate not having a tb!

    I thought you weren't doing AH maths? Thought I read that on the cam subforum... and I should think most people will be hoping for all A band 1s!

    I did Advanced Higher last year and we had the Campells Biology textbook as well as a few others, but its not for the advanced hiogher course and is way more than you'll need. I mostly used the student monograph, scholar and class notes, I only really used the textbooks for my investigation.

    got ages left for biology investigations, we'r going to start them after christmas! BUT our teachers are making us think of our titles.... thinking something about enzymes (not sure yet)

    I'm doing Advanced Biology and Chemistry, and I just can't absorb a thing.
    The projects are easy enough, and I'm hoping to get a good mark. Please,
    does anyone know the best way to revise? Everyone in my class says
    "Oh I can't do it, I'm going to fail." Yeah right. Those are the ones that got
    AAAAA last year. Please help, I need to pass a unit! :confused:

    Do you have the student monographs for bio? They're helpful - pretty concise. Scholar's excellent too. I find mind maps quite helpful when revising, maybe give them ago? Let me know how you get on x

    Yeah I use mind maps, I put all the learning outcomes on one bit of paper
    filled with colour and cartoons. Quite helpful, and the teacher was impressed!

    I think jaird.88 misread £K22's post, and thought she'd said she had 5 As when in fact she was talking about OTHERS who had 5 As...
