Welcome Scholars,  Bio 325 genetics, First assignment and Intro. Dr. Pierson Welcome scholars to Bio 325 Genetics. Bio 325 Genetics is one of the most difficult courses for  students majoring in the biological sciences at The University of Texas at Austin.  The course has  an extensive problem-solving component and  a tremendous amount of conceptual knowledge to  master.  These problems are very difficult because you have had little or no experience with  exercises of this type.  On Fridays, I have a special three-hour “office hour” in which I ask  students questions to determine if they are ready for the next week’s quiz or test.  This is an  opportunity to assess your study technique to see of you are learning the material at the A level.  I  also work all the assigned problems with the students during these hours so that together we can  be sure that you can work the problems.  Please arrange your schedule immediately so that you  will be able to attend Friday office hours from 3:10PM to 6PM each Friday.  Of course these office  hours are not required, they are highly recommended. Research has shown that the primary predictor of student academic success is the time that the  student spends studying the material.  The brain makes new connections physically changing as  we learn so in my opinion, we are able to develop an unlimited knowledge base and an unlimited  capability to learn as long as we keep working at it.   This study time must be quality time, the student must not be distracted or be too tired for the  learning to take place.  I have found that students who are accepted by The University of Texas
