    hey guys-i know that this topic has been discussed but i couldn't find an answer for my question specifically. the ADA guide states that we will be tested on plants under "classifications", but what about non classification stuff? basically i thought classification of plants implies pp 154-157 of cliffs ap ie "kingdom plantae"...
    i didn't bother with the entire plant chapter (that discusses tissues, primary/secondary growth, transport mechanisms, hormones etc). has anyone had questions on these topics?

    The consensus on most score report threads I've read was very little to no plant questions. Personally, plant biology is only practical if you're interested in gardening or growing some herbs. Stick to animals.

    I took the DAT last october with that mentality and got burnt on multiple plant questions. I would be comprehensive and know a little bit about plants.
