GLOSSARY

TO THE STUDENT

This revision guide has been written specifically for the Year 12 Biological syllabus (ATAR course) Units 3 and 4.

The guide is divided into five sections:
• Terminology and Review Questions
• Trial Tests
• Answers to Terminology and Review Questions
• Solutions to Trial Tests
• Glossary

Terminology and Review Questions
Terms have been included at the beginning of each section. It is recommended that you develop an understanding of these before you attempt the questions that follow them. Check their meaning before proceeding to the review questions. A mastery of the vocabulary is very important and will help you to understand the subject’s concepts.

It is also recommended that you complete the review questions after you have covered the work at school. Use them when appropriate to prepare for section tests. Carefully make additions and corrections to your own answers using the answers near the back of the book. If you do this consistently you should develop a better understanding of each area. This will help you to prepare for tests and examinations.

Trial Tests
This section has been expanded and improved in this new guide. There are now more trial tests. Each test has twenty multiple choice questions, a short answer section and an extended answer question.

In self-marking the extended answers, note that in the answer section each dot point is allocated one mark. Study the answers carefully; this will assist you to gauge how comprehensive your answers need to be to achieve good marks. An answer given may not be the only acceptable one, however where appropriate use it as a model for your own. In the short answer section, when for example four marks are allocated to a question, try to find four distinct parts to your answer. In biology exams (as with many others) the number of marks allocated is usually indicative of the number of distinct points required in your answer. A single word or phrase is therefore unlikely to score more than one mark.

Glossary
With the exciting changes in the Year 12 biology course, there was a need to add a number of terms to the glossary. Use the glossary as you would use a dictionary. It should help you to master the vocabulary of the course. It will be very useful to look in the glossary for any words that are unfamiliar to you and to record each new word with its meaning in your own notes.

I hope this revision book will help you to enjoy, understand and succeed in biology. Good luck in your studies!
