    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Dr. Sundermann is an excellent professor that presents, and tests, the material in an easier format.

    Course highlights:

    Compared to other BIOL1020 professors, Dr. Sundermann strays away from the reverse classroom format. Additionally, her lectures are far from boring because she's so interesting to watch and throws in a joke here and there. Overall, I've enjoyed my experience in her class.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you review MasteringBiology (provided as extra credit) because she picks which questions she wants you to encounter. Additionally, she adds some on the test. Granted, MasteringBiology is a lot more difficult than her actual exam but that just means you'll be over-prepared.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    If you are able to find old exams on Course hero it is a big help

    Course highlights:

    I gained an understanding of staying ahead in class. Dr. Bowling make you go over chapeter material before class.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would find old exams posted by students. They are a big help while studying. They give you an understanding of what to expect and some are the same questions!

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The material was interesting and Dr. Zhong truly cares about her students. She strives for us to succeed, and she's also hilarious. I was well prepared for the cumulative final due to Dr. Zhong's teaching and suggestions. She never handed out grades, but she's extremely reasonable and understanding when it comes to her students. It was a huge lecture class, but she did a great job of making it feel small by dividing us into study groups and having time for discussion in class.

    Course highlights:

    I now have a through knowledge of basic biological processes in nature. This course is foundational, and I feel well-prepared to take biology classes in the future that build on it. The teams we were divided into helped so much. She gave us in-class worksheets to do and other activities, then gave us grades for correctness, attendance and participation, so there was plenty of opportunities to make up for doing bad on tests or other assignments.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    GO TO CLASS. You can't reap the benefits of learning if you never show up to the class itself. Dr. Zhong provides a lot of extra learning material and advice on how to study. Use her, the course materials and Supplemental Instruction. This class is only hard if you fall behind on studying and you don't go to class. Stay on top of things and you'll get an A.
