    Telepathetic commented that Macquarie is better than Excel and I completely agree - Angela have you seen Macquarie...

    btw which is the better textbook jacaranda or heinemann? They were just described without any judgement made - or is there a better one out there?

    Biology in context is pretty good

    i studied by class notes and school provided textbook and i'm first so far

    if the format in the textbook is easy for you to understand you really don't need much else
    all the info should be in there and if not your class teacher should have given you notes on them.

    Incredibly useful :)

    OK, here's a link to my notes.

    The entire course is covered, along with the Biotechnology option and numerous typos.

    This is hosted on an old computer of mine, and I don't think it will download any quicker than 10KB/sec

    http://www.ssdec.nsw.edu.au/science/biology/index.html - course outlines for both Prelim and HSC Biology

    www.archive.org - the Internet Archive - bookmark this and use it every time you find a 404 to get some archived info.

    http://www.anbg.gov.au/anbg/index-site.html - The Australian National Botanic Gardens website - probably more useful for the prelim course, but still.

    Re: Useful Biology Resources

    Online Biology Book Glossary- all the words you are likely to ever come across in bio.

    ScienceDaily- news website has heaps of good articles thou that are relevant to bio.

    Citationcreation.com- good for generating your referance list when doing assessments

    Hope these help.

    Re: Useful Biology Resources

    Heya People. I've already posted this in the "CSSA Bio 07" thread but it looks like this thread needs it badly.

    If you guys need good notes, wait 'perfect' notes, download all the "Ahmad Shah Idil" notes from the resources page on Biology. He got 98 (4th in the state) for his HSC, so you're looking at extremely detailed, all you need to know notes. And you don't need further references or your text books. They go over everything.

    Here's the links

    I find this resource very useful!
    It explains things in simple terms
    Hope it helps!!

    perfect. There will always be challenges, obstacles and less
    than perfect conditions. So what. Get started now. With each
    step you take, you will grow stronger and stronger, more and
    more skilled, more and more self-confident and more and more
    successful."
