    I also went through Cliffs..but I skipped some accordingly because I know it was way too detailed.

    Some main points to know about taxonomy.


    Chordates:

    Deuterostome Vs. Protostome - which phylum is which.
    Acoelomate Vs. Coelomate - which phylum is which
    Bilateral Vs. Radial symmetry - which phylum is which (be careful about Echinoderms, growing up bilaterally; radially as adults)
    Chambered hearts of chordates - 2, 3, 4, which is which.

    Plants:

    Distinguish between....

    Nonvascular Vs. Vascular
    Seedless Vs. Seeded
    Gymnosperms Vs. Angiosperms
    Dicots Vs. Monocots

    Protists - for protozoans, focus on characteristics of rhizopds (amoebas), paramecium. then some characteristics with algae.

    I think other kingdoms are straightforward. Again, I recommend Alan's notes (that 18 pages of bio notes). Hands down the most helpful notes I ever found on this website.
