Can I just say that I am glad you, and other are here. Specifically those for which this is "basic understanding?" I have no idea what the hell you just said.
I'm with you CDiddy. Can't understand the lingo. That's why I preferred Chemistry over biology. I'm good at math, chemistry is mostly basic math, no calculus needed, much basic algebra and ratios and "patterns". Biology....tons of memorizing, especially big terms. So biologists use terms often, to explain something, but we don't understand the terms. Still, even biology, can usually be explained with concepts, while excluding the terms, but it takes more words/sentences/more work.
