    | Would highly recommend.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Dr. Barr is very enthusiastic about the class. It is both interesting and easy to get through. The papers are also easy A's and you'll walk away from the class with a better understanding of how chemistry and science affects us all.

    Course highlights:

    I learned alot about sustainability and in depth details of science. It was really great that we got to talk about real things that have happened and how chemistry and science played a part in them. Dr. Barr's demos were as well always a treat. He knew a lot of cool experiments to show the class.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    You don't need the text book but starting the papers early would be wise. They are super easy so I would just get them out of the way. Wait until he posts sources of information for the paper and use those links in your paper, you won't go wrong. Also make sure you study the class notes and understand each topic because things can get confusing come quiz time. Dr. Barr does not do alot of multiple choice. The quizzes and tests wont be hard but you will have to know the material to do well.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course. It really help you understand the human body and the things around you much better. I think everyone should take an intro bio course in there college years. This course was especially special. It was challenging but the professor made class a joyful, fun learning experience.

    Course highlights:

    The good thing about this class it that you come out learning at least one thing really well. It also plays a great favor in preparing those premed for the MCAT and medical school. It is challenging but the professor does a really good job making sure students understand what is being taught. First semester I learned a lot about photosynthesis and cellular respiration and how they play a role in our survival. They aid in metabolism and much more. Second semester I learned about the human body's developement ( how we went from having no vertebrae to having one).

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    You much be willing to put in long hours of studying and hard work. You cannot be lazy and undetermined. Don't be afraid to ask for help when you need it or raise your hand in class, it helps you and your classmates.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend any course with this professor. He makes learning fun and interesting! The course is challenging but I love that we learn so much and are able to apply it to real world situations.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot about cellular respiration and photosynthesis first semester and Developement of the human body second semester. It included info about the developement of other species such as amphibians, other mammals, birds, trees, etc. We leaned how photosynthesis and cellular respiration plays a major role when it comes to breathing, the environment ( trees health), metabolism, and the overall bodily functions.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    You should be willing to stay up and study for long period of time. There is a quiz every single week. This may seem crazy but it helps you prepare for the exams. It defiantly prepares premed students for medical school.
