You are missing the point of the two advisory posts. You must have a broad background in biology in order to graduate with a major degree in it. Before you understand fully the biology of animals, you must understand cell biology. Before you can understand cell biology, you must undersatnd some molecular biology. Sure, you will want to take zoology, probably both vertebrate and invertebrate along the way. But those courses usually have a pre-requisite of General Biology (majors course) in order to enroll. True, some community colleges offer a "zoology" course with no pre-requisites, but this is an elementary form that is of little value for someone wanting to major in Biology. If you have a good background in science and math in high school, you should be able to take General Biology as a college freshman. If you have not had high school chemistry and calculus, you will probably have to take those first. That is why what you are taking now is so very important.
