Not too easy. Not too difficult.
This lab was very hands on, interactive, and easy to follow. The TA was also very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the labs.
The entire course was intriguing, it's hard for me to place one event above another, but what I remember most is the difference between endothermic and exothermic, which deals with heat production. This lesson stands out most because we used huge cockroaches to test if they were endothermic or exothermic. I learned a lot about the way life works scientifically, much of which I did not know before hand. Like, who thinks of how insects produce heat for survival? Definitely not me, but it's something interesting I know now that stuck with me.

Advice for students:
If you're entering this course my advice to you is to be thorough in your note taking. Even if something seems trivial, write it down, remember it. Utilize your TA's office hours as well, they are always there to help you when you're confused and they're bound to guide you in the direction for the course. Lastly, review material weekly. Cramming for such an information, fact and theory filled class is almost always unsuccessful. The vocabulary terms are also very important, pay close attention to them.
