Biolympiads Crash Course: Beta version

$75.00 $50.00 / month

This course is specifically designed for the biology olympiad preparation. Note it’s not an introductory course to biology and you are expected to have a solid foundation in biology before you take this course. So we recommend to read Campbell Biology at least three times and watch Khan academy videos to help you grasp the basics quickly.

The course material was prepared using the following textbooks used in the Biology Olympiad:

In this course, we will present the most important concepts that you should know for the Biology Olympiad. They were selected from all major fields of biology, including genetics, plant biology, zoology, biotechnology, biochemistry, molecular biology and others.
