Apologia breaks Biology and Chemistry into two courses each. For Biology, there is a standard/introductory Biology course called Biology and an Advanced Biology course, called Human Body. For Chemistry, there is a standard/introductory course called Chemistry and another course called Advanced Chemistry. Each of these courses are one year courses. The standard /introductory level Apologia courses (without DIVE ) do not teach all the concepts required to prepare for the corresponding CLEP exam. These students should take the self-paced DIVE Biology eLearning Course or DIVE Chemistry eLearning course using our Accelerated Schedule below, followed by the corresponding CLEP Professor course to prepare for the CLEP exam.
Featuring expert video instruction, automated grading, video solutions, and Q&A email support with Dr. Shormann, DIVE Biology makes learning faster and easier!
Accelerated Schedule for DIVE eLearning Course
1. Work on the DIVE Biology (or Chemistry) course a minimum of four to five days per week, for no more than an 1.5 to 2 hours per day.
2. Skip lessons one through 22 which were taught in Apologia.
3. Complete all other DIVE assignments, except the quarterly exams, as instructed - digital flashcards, video lectures, review questions, video labs.
