    | Would highly recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    It's full of so much information that one recognizes from past chemistry and biology courses and you see how it's all put together in real situations and body systems.

    Course highlights:

    I liked the quizzes because they force you to study the material early on and the tests are very straightforward. I learned how to study and learn a lot of information and I learned how helpful a teacher is willing to be if you just go see them. Also it's okay to read the book! I promise it's not as bad as it looks.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    The book was so helpful and I am definitely one of those people that does not read the book if people tell me I don't need to so for me to say that you should read the book is saying a lot. Don't read it before you take the notes for the class though. Reading ahead was not as helpful for me because the book seemed WAY more dense when you haven't learned that material yet. I read the book while I am going back over my notes and trying to understand what the teacher wants us to know. Use your notes as a guide to reading the book. Also, go see the teacher. He is so nice and if you go over the notes with him, he will even tell you things you don't need to know for the test, which is one less thing to memorize because it is a lot of information for each test. But he does not try to trick you on the test. I promise, if you feel like you truly know ALL of your notes forward an back and all the mechanisms, you will get an A because the tests are very straightforward but you do need to know the material.

    | Would recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course was challenging and required a lot of reading. I relied heavily upon the book and fellow classmates to teach me. We were required to draw the molecular formula for many of the amino acids and DNA chains.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of this course was honestly when I finished it. I struggled through the course the entire time and received a B-. I have never been so proud of a B- in my life. I learned so much but also forgot most of the information by the time I graduated in 2014.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    I advise you to study hard and create a study group that allows you to learn efficiently. This is a challenging course that moves quickly and requires minimal procrastination. I thoroughly read the book and completed as many practice problems as I possibly could.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would only recommend it to someone who is very serious about science because it was so focused and pretty difficult.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot about physiological mechanisms and whatnot. It really built on what was presented in previous biology and chemistry classes, like Cell Bio, Genetics, ORGO, and Animal Phys. It was interesting, but also a bit overwhelming.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Study. Go to office hours, especially for homework help (it makes assignments so much easier). Study more. And don't wait until the night before to study for your first exam (trust me).
