Does anyone know what chapters of the Campbell book are NOT on the SAT II/AP test? A lot of the information seems to be pretty useless (for the tests), and I want to know what I should really be studying.

Campbell Reece, I spent some good times with that book :).

Anyway, in AP Bio, I read through every chapter of the book and didn't skip anything. To the best of my knowledge, all of it is on the test. I don't think you need to get into the level of detail that Campbell does, though, but I'd know it all. I went crazy for the AP test last year and kind of overkilled it. Got a 5 though :).

The one thing I would recommend that nobody does is STUDY THE OFFICIAL COLLEGE BOARD LABS. Why? Last year for the first time they put something on the test that you wouldn't know unless you

b. had taken statistics

I had done neither and completely bombed 1/3 of the free response question. It was something about chi-squares and population analysis. Look on apcentral of the collegeboard website for it. I think it was the first question on the 2003 exam.
