Cellular Respiration - Glycolysis Test

Welcome to the new Electronic Frontier Advanced Biology Classroom of the 21st Century. This test will focus on the cellular respiration process called "glycolysis". Cellular respiration involves four major steps: glycolysis, Krebs cycle, electron transport chain and chemiosmosis. As "fill-in" questions appear in this test, please enter your answer(s) using all lower case letters. Unless the question site has specific directions for you to follow. I hope you find this testing instrument very helpful in learning cellular respiration! GOOD LUCK!
