    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course to anyone considering going into Biology or Pre-Med since it is usually a pre requsiste. Although I enjoyed this class, it was by far one of the toughest. I took it my first semester and somewhat wished I didn't. Some of the curriculum was a bit difficult to learn from only the lectures. Dr. Linton was a great professor, was very respectful to her students and was fast paced in her lectures.

    Course highlights:

    I will never forget how to draw and layout a phylogenetic tree since this is burned into my memory.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Always attend the SI sessions! It was hard to comprehend what we were learning in our lectures and the SI sessions were very helpful. Make sure to go to her office hours with no hesitation, and ask questions. Make sure you do your homework before class so you know what to expect on the daily quizzes she would make us do.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    This course is required for biology majors, but I would recommend taking it with another professor. She has a degree in how to teach biology effectively, so she focused on how she presented it, not if we were learning the right information. She wasn't a bad professor but I would try to get someone else because the course is the first in the required block of classes.

    Course highlights:

    You learn a lot about cladograms and family trees. Phenotypes, alleles, mutations, natural selection, and parts of evolution are discussed in detail, and you learn about phylums.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    The homework problems don't align with what we discussed in class so try to do it with another person. Review your notes before class because it'll help with the daily quizzes.

    | Would recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it will challenge the way you learn and how you understand them. Professor Pangle is an excellent teacher and very understanding

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course were the mammal section, but don't get me wrong, plants and fungi are cool too, and the labs were also very interesting

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do the reading and go to class
