BI 101 exam today

weeeee.. electron transport chains!

I think the most difficult thing on this test, for me, was the memorization of all the cellular respiration and photosynthesis stuff. Partly because there's a lot of memorization involved, and partly because of having to differentiate between the two. Had to keep reminding myself..

Cellular respiration: glycolysis, Krebs cycle, electron transport chain
Photosynthesis: light reactions, Calvin cycle

weee..

We non-plants have to memorize all the steps before we can start photosynthesizing...

Actually, I was thinking more along the lines that I am a plant, and therefor find it difficult to think of my natural processes in terms of thykaloid membraines and ATP.

Thanks. (^*^) Will see.. I think I did okay on this one. There were some questions weren't sure about though, involving all the little things moving between each stage of the cycles.

NAD+, NADPH, H+, ATP, glucose, water, carbon dioxide, oxygen, yada yada.. so many little things that fit in very specific parts of each process, but in different places in the different processes, and trying to memorize the full chain for each can be kinda confusing. (^*^);
