    When water encounters an apoplast block in the form of the casparian strip in the endodermis it enters the symplastic pathway into the endodermis. Active transport of ions reduces the W potential of the xylem so all the water moves into it.

    The pressure created by the water diffusing in is responsible for root pressure, it is very low. Transpiration pull is more important.

    Mate, I am
    and ive just found an incred technique for memorising provided you have already shortened your notes.

    litterally imagine a place known to you ... and associate everything with vivid objects and make funny scenarios ..
    e.g
    imagine a river near you ... except its flowing with blood.......
    then this massive rectangular boat splits into 4. flows with it ... (haemoglobin ..quartenary structure.. each strip of boat= pp chain..)
    each strip has a Bright red block letter H ( represents haem groups) containing iron and giving it red colour.
    then imagine 4 massive O2 phones flying into boat ( represents 4 molecules of oxgen haemoglobin can carry) imagaine loads of O2 phones as if they were flying around like the keys in harry potter 1st movies... and that that the boat is attracted to to the keys like a magnet ( high affinity with high partial pressure).
    the boat now flows down the blood river making stops in places that do no not have any 02 phones around them ( respiring cells ....)
    etcetc


    i have been doing this 5 minutes for each topic... and its like i cant forget it ...
    use sexy women ..
    use whatever you want .. just make sure you can repeat the story..
    its speeding up my revision like Mad...
    i might even be able to get some sleep.
    apparently this how the Memory champions of the world ... remember 32000 words/deck of cards with ease..
    and its working for me

    yeh man you've just got to come up with random ideas fast ..
    honestly if you really put effort in ... so you can like see the place through your eyes..
    you can't forget it in short term....
    its like if you watch a Movie... you can explain everything that happens .. but 5 weeks later ... you won't be able to explain with as much detail etc....
    play that movie in your head now ... watch it ... make it interesting ..
    and talk about it tomorrow when they ask you to explain it

    I use this technique, I do it to memorise like a list of 50 + numbers. Understanding the material is equally as important because a lot of the q's test your understanding of the subject

    Nice scenario btw

    When is your BIOL2 exam? 1:30 right

    yeh I think so ... 1:30 or 2:00pm
    understanding is vital ... because almost everything you asked requires you to apply knowledge.. but if you cant remember it is very difficult to apply...
    I don't know if its because of the pressure for me to remember that this technique is working so well....
    because I sware im having a great time ... in my head right now

    Dna helicase = is an Axe seperating siamese twins (breaks down h bonds)... btw the siamese twins are the most gorgeous women ..
    Dna polymerase= is superglue (joins H + bonds/ specific base pairing)
    all this happens in a conservatory... = semi conservative replication.

    IMAGINATION =
    I have wasted alot of time in the past with inefficient revision.. so happy right now

    Magnification = image / original size
    imagine a rubbish drawing of a house on paper.... you make it into a paper aeroplane... then just throw it outside .. and lands on top of your own house...
    image/original size. you cant believe it is the paper on top of the house... so you bring out your magnifying glass to check....

    sounds long ... but it can be dne in 5 seconds... u wnt forget
