Biology 30 Study Resources

Alberta Education

Alberta Education has published a diploma guide for students.

Checklists / Outcome Lists

These checklists are intended to be used as a "study guide" or review to remind you of the main topics of this course.  Checklists for individual units can be found under each chapter heading.  Here is the Bio 30 Complete Outcome Checklist

Biology 30 Flash Cards

These flash cards were developed by the Mrs. Krystofiak at St. Albert High School.

They Key

The Key is a publication put out by Castle Rock, and is in my opinion the best study resource available for Biology 30.  They can be purchased at most major book stores, or we sell them through the school at the beginning of each semester.  Older versions (within the past 15 years) will work just fine as the curriculum has not changed that much in that time. This is a must have in my opinion for all serious Biology 30 students.

Castle Rock also offers a service for students that includes the entire course content, videos, animation, and thousands of practice questions with corresponding feedback.  This is a subscription service and is $29.95 per month.

Quest A+

The provincial government has put out some practice diploma exams on the Quest A+ website.  It is a pretty very good source, but there is a limited number of questions.

Exam Bank

Exambank.com has a lot of questions, but in my opinion is not all that useful for Biology 30.  There are several questions that are non-curricular or irrelevant.  That said, there are a number of good questions as well - the trick is knowing which are which!  Use at own risk! You will need to use the following username and password to access the site:  Username: mchs    Password: prairie
