    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Bretscher is a very good teacher. He fully explains the concepts in an organized and concise manner. The way he speaks shows his full understanding of the material and it makes you want to know more about it. Also, BIOMG 1350 is a very interesting course in terms of the topics.

    Course highlights:

    My favorite parts of this course were the fertilization and embryonic topics. I thought that the topics were very interesting and fun to learn.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you study the material every week and not just right before an exam. There is a lot of material taught in the class and it is very hard to cram everything into your mind all at once. Also, it is very helpful to make outlines of the textbook which you can use as study guides for exams later on.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The course is very interesting as it goes into details about specific biological pathways we were always taught to take for granted. You can really see the applications of the class in research and medical development, and I think that this is really fascinating.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of the course were the protein pathways we got to study, because I feel like they hold the greatest potential for specific drug targets for new medical treatment methods. I learned a lot about cellular mechanisms for growth, DNA replication, and signaling.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be able to explain the concepts to your fellow students. If you can understand how everything is related, you'll be able to answer the questions that ask you what happens to a system when one portion of it is dysfunctional.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Very insightful course. Lots of information, but you can definitely tell that Dr. Huffaker loves the material and is very interested.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a ton about the dynamics of the cell, and how basic processes you were only briefly described in high school biology actually occur.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Study the slides, and never take it for granted.
