    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I wouldn't really recommend it because he tends to stutter a lot during lectures and likes to put things on tests that he went over for 2 seconds and forgets to go back to.

    Course highlights:

    Highlights were that there was SI sessions to attend to help understand the material better. I learned that you have to know the material inside and out to really do well on exams.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Get all the help you can and KNOW YOUR MATERIAL. Even if you barely went over it, it will still most likely be on an exam.

    | Would recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The professor was great and the TAs are extremely helpful during discussion section but as it is a freshman intro class, there was 400 people to a lecture section, making the tedious course material quite difficult to focus on. Prepare to study outside the classroom.

    Course highlights:

    The discussion section prepared us for exams immensely.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take it! You need it if you're a science major anyways. Laura is the best.

    | Would recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend it to Bio majors because it was a strong basis of background knowledge in the subject. I would not recommend it to people just getting a Gen Ed done because it's a lot of work and a LOT of topics, and not worth the time if you don't have a good Bio background/won't really need it in future classes.

    Course highlights:

    This class cemented and built upon my understandings of basic AP Bio concepts: The Central Dogma of Biology, Transcription, Translation, Signal Transduction, Stem Cells, Cell Respiration.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the textbook. Even if the professor does not recommend the text book, either buy one or read stuff online, watch videos, listening in class is not enough to cement the knowledge. There's so much to it. Sometimes the professors teach in a strange order. Try to organize the notes into a working outline form on a computer, rather than handwriting notes. Also, keep an eye out for TA notes.
