She is very nice, but the class is hard. Tests are very hard. She expects the 9th grade biology to be as good as her AP classes.

She is quite vague in the area of when things are actually due. She doesn't do nearly enough actual teaching, choosing instead to leave it up to the students to read from a book. Also, she tends to guilt trip the students.

In APES all you have to do is all of your work and you will pass because the tests and essays are very hard!!! Quizzes are easy if you take notes and read.

Tests are a breeze if you study enough. Homework consists of taking notes on every chapter, which I didn't find too helpful. Class time is spent lecturing, watching videos, and doing online "web quests".

as long as you read the book immensely, you should be fine... because her lectures are incredibly boring and usually don't even apply to what's on the AP test. just teach yourself.
