Here's the best bet:
1. Learn the basics
2. Learn the advanced stuff
3. Read what you already know as often as you can to stop you from forgeting

I personally use visual learning. I have a Biology CD that I use to study with and it helps me more than reading the book.

That depends on the person. More than 70% of the world population have visual memory as dominant memory. But for some, audio memory is the dominant memory. Believe it or not, some people learn better by listening to a biology song :)

Yeah it does depend on the person, that's just how I learn best. I'm sure that there's alot of CDs out there at bookstores and libraries. Mine is a Campbells Biology CD 7th Edition.

The CD comes with the text book. I bought the book on campus at my University for about $175. That's an approximation. The CD comes with it.

You can buy Campbell International edition on the interned for about half that price. My girlfriend got it, it's really cool

Use all your organs and particularly your sense organs. Read, read, read, and don't memorize things, that's completely wasting time and useless!! :twisted:

I find it so much easier to study Biology when I am sure that everything I read makes sense. If not I would never hesitate to ask questions.
Botany is the study of what? Bottoms!

Ya, good, ask and discuss, that's what I like a lot ;) Don't forget to learn from figures, you can "read" a lot of things from figures, that's why I have bunches of figures, I share some here 8)
