I'm taking Higher Biology this year and I've never done biology before.
I've read that the Higher course isn't really based much on National 5 knowledge, but I'd like to know what to study from Nat5 to help me crash this Higher.

What do you recommend?

Maybe look at the nat 5 spec and compare to the higher spec, see what comes up?
From what I remember that was in nat 5 and higher:
DNA structure(make sure you know the basis of this)
A little about DNA replication
eh, I think anything that crossed over in nat 5 and higher was mainly in unit 1 of higher.
Atm I can't think of anything else

Suppose also things like structures of cells.
As you go through higher you can always go and look back to the nat 5 course

Okay, unit one is cell biology right? I've been studying that on BBC bitesize for the past three days and I've covered that unit.

3 days to do a whole unit? Have you gone through the course outlines as well to ensure everything's covered.
Yeah unit 1 is cell biology. I've just gone briefly through the nat 5 specification and it's really only unit 1 which you build upon. Other stuff may crop in from other units but it'll be easy enough to learn
