HELP! Data Analysis.

It would be great if someone could give me some advice on how to do better in data analysis? :(

I am okay with everything else in the papers... But I really can't seem to do those data analysis questions and its dragging my whole test grades down :(

Please help :(

the single most important thing for data based questions is to understand the COMMAND term in the question (from state and describe (which requires to just look off the data and make simple deductions) to evaluate and discuss (which requires interpretive thinking and drawing conclusions based on that)... also, when answering questions, define key terms and then go about answering the question.

i would suggest to go through the Allott Textbook on IB BIO - allott provides sample data based questions which can give valuable practice (for example, my teacher gives us quizzes on every single subunit around once-twice a week, and uses data based questions as 1/3rd the marks, really good practice). I have a link to the answers for you: http://ib-biology2010-12.wikispaces.com/file/view/Tiger+book+DBQ+answers.pdf/191732250/Tiger%20book%20DBQ%20answers.pdf

good luck!!! AND KNOW YOUR COMMAND TERMS!
