Great Intro to the Subject
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
This course gives you all the basics you need to succeed in any science-related majors. In it you will learn the fundamentals of biology. The material is interesting and the class is a great one for first semester for freshmen.
I loved learning genetics and molecular processes inside the cell (such as DNA replication, transcription, and translation). The labs that go along with the course are complementary to it and add to your knowledge of class material.

Advice for students:
Read the book before doing MasteringBiology and before coming to class. This will allow you to be more prepared and will make the lectures seem more like a chapter review than brand new information being thrown at you. Make sure you check the time that the homework is due (as it might change sometimes).
