    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it is challenging for first year students, but Professor Zeman has a great way of passing the material on to students.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of the course would be learning about genetics. I found this very interesting and I will be taking another genetics course while at GVSU

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would advise the student to review his or her notes each day for 45 minutes.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course to anyone entering a health profession as it is a very good overview of general biology.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot about cellular processes such as photosynthesis, cellular respiration, mitosis and meiosis, etc.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure to attend all the labs and class time. If you put in the effort you can definitely succeed in this course.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    It's usually required for majors, but this course is very interesting nonetheless. If you were interested in biology and science in high school, it is basically that but much more advanced and more information.

    Course highlights:

    Professor Cymbola kept things interesting even when the lecture might've been boring that day. She was funny. But content-wise, I learned a lot about cells and the way the body works that I didn't know before. For example, the way hormones work for a girls period or the way contractions work during pregnancy.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    STUDY HARD! I did not study as hard as I should've and I wish I would've because it was important and definitely something I was interested in.
