if you had to estimate, how many of the 40 bio questions are on these two subjects?
lol no, just kidding. probably anywhere from 0 to like 6 or 7 or more
anyone else have an idea?? did they just add these things on the test recently?
ive never learned this stuff in college and might not want to spend too much time on it
Plant stuff i'm also wondering how much we need to know. I never learned stuff about plants before (except the biochemistry and biotech applications).
they definitly have plant physiology, life cycles, structures and diagrams. 1-5 questions on both topics
def know things like the progression of plants
from mosses (non vascular gametophyte dominant) to gymnosperms (vascular with naked seed - think pine cones) to angiosperms (vascular with flowers sporophyte dominant )
and then under angiosperms, differences between monocots(1 cotyledon, parallel veins on leaves, scattered vascular tissue) and dicots (2cotyledons, netlike veins on leaves, vascular tissue found in central core)
Structures of flower (angiosperms): stamen (male) consists of filament and anther
Pistil(female) consists of stigma, style and ovary
How you need two sperms for fertilization, one for the ovary and one that fuses with the two polar bodies to form the endosperm.
that's all i can think of for now. if anything else pops up i'll post back
thank you. seems like i have all of this stuff to learn now.
thanks so much! i think i know what to study for plants..do you non science major guys spend any time on invertebrate stuff?
the extent of my invertebrate knowledge comes from whatever material was covered in destroyer lol.
