Crash Highering Human Biology - what prior knowledge do you need? Watch

    • Thread Starter

    For 6th year I'd like to crash higher human biology as I'd like to leave school with a science. I have heard that it doesn't rely on much prior knowledge, which makes it seem the easiest to crash higher out of the other sciences?

    If this is true, what is the prior knowledge that is needed?

    And what's a good Biology book?

    Thanks~ ^o^

    Yeah I'd say biology is a good crash higher of all the sciences, I guess you'd best have a look over Nat 5 if you haven't taken it. For my nat 5 bio I used Hodder Gibson which has a lot of reading for interest but is probably a good one for you because it'll allow you to read up a little on the subject. For your higher qualification I'd recommend either Hodder Gibson or Bright Red, but that was for biology not human bio, either way its still a good textbook for clear, concise notes
