Basic lower level undergrad biology courses involve a lot of memorization of terms and concepts, and depending on the professor, some minutiae to check whether you've studied comprehensively. Expect to use your foundation acquired in the lower level courses when you take upper level courses that may require abstract thinking and application of biological principles to solve a problem, answer a research question or critically analyze a research article. While I've never heard of concept maps I think the additional suggestions are noteworthy. Keep in mind that each professor's teaching method and the nature of the coursework itself will require you to adapt your method of study in order to succeed. YMMV.
