Use the following resources to help study and review for the Biology Keystone exam. 
 
FIRST 
 
VOCABULARY IS THE SINGLE MOST IMPORTANT PART OF THIS EXAM!! IF YOU DON'T UNDERSTAND WHAT THE QUESTION IS ASKING YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO ANSWER IT!  This is my suggested method for review:
  1. Begin reviewing the vocabulary.  View the flashcards on Quizlet for each unit. Understanding the language is the first and most important part of taking this exam.
  2. Watch the Crash Course videos for each unit.  These videos are very useful in that there is an outline of the video content at the end of each video.  If you did not understand a certain concept or just want to watch a specific part, jump to the end and click on the topic you want to review.
  3. After each video, there is a review worksheet.  These worksheets go over the material that will be found on the Biology Keystone.
Begin reviewing with Unit 1 and continue through Unit 8.
  1. Unit 1 - Basic Biological Principles
  2. Unit 2 - Chemical Basis for Life
  3. Unit 3 - Bioenergetics
  4. Unit 4 - Homeostasis and Transport
  5. Unit 5 - Cell Growth and Reproduction
  6. Unit 6 - Genetics
  7. Unit 7 - Ecology
  8. Unit 8 - Theory of Evolution 
SECOND 
 
Once you have reviewed each unit, the last page contains practice Biology Keystone questions.  There is also a link to the New York State Regents exam practice questions.  I recommend using the "Interactive Questions" in the left column.  Click on a topic you would like to practice and instead of hitting the "Back" button after answering, choose a number below "Select Another Question Within this Topic".
