This class was tough.
I would recommend this course because it was very interesting and I learned a load of information I had not been previously exposed to. The only thing that made this course tough was that our grade depended solely on three exams. The exams can be pretty difficult, so this course definitely requires a good amount of studying and preparing.
In this course we mainly learned about evolution and primates. We used many "trees" in this course in order to understand what genus belonged to what species. There was a lot of memorization that went into this class because the names of the different species were very complicated. We learned a lot about fossils and neanderthals as well.

Advice for students:
I would say that in order to succeed in this class, students should be prepared to do a great deal of studying before the exams. Preparing about a week or two before will be very helpful because there are only three exams, so each one will cover a large amount of information.
