**About the course**

The **USABO Problem Solving Training** consists of a video course aimed to helps students prepare for the USABO Open and Semifinal exams.

The USA Biology Olympiad is the premier biology competition in the USA. The competition begins in February with the Open Exam, which is open to every high school student. The top 600 students, based on the scores on the Open Exam, are invited to the Semifinals, and the top 20 students from the Semifinals are invited to the Finals. If a student makes the USABO Semifinals or the Finals, then he or she has a legitimate claim to be one of the top 600 or top 20 biology students in America, respectively.

The goal of the **Biolympiads USABO Problem Solving Course** is to prepare highly motivated students to compete in the USA Biology Olympiad. The students will learn how to solve questions efficiently and in the least amount of time. Guided by **USABO Semifinalists** and **IBO** **medalists**, camp participants will gain invaluable **critical** **thinking** **skills** and learn **test**–**taking** **strategies**.

Students will be able to access the Teachable platform where they will find videos with step-by-step explanations of the most complicated biology olympiad questions.

**Course content**

The course is divided into 3 modules:

**Problem solving in USABO exams**- Around 100 USABO Open exams will be explained step-by-step.
