    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because the professor was incredibly adaptive.

    Course highlights:

    For me, the curriculum was the highlight. I am incredibly interested in biological studies so learning all about biology was great for me.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be prepared to put in the study time. It may seem silly to start studying weeks in advance, but with all of the content, don't procrastinate.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Biology can be pretty hard, especially Bio 1500. A lot of student consider it a weed out class for pre-med students and they are not wrong. I will say that this class is not east however, it all depends on how you approach it and who is teaching it. Dr. Turchyn was a great professor for this class. She did a great job at describing how the concepts and helped lead us in the right direction when it came to preparing for exams. While she was helpful, it still didn't mean I couldn't slack off in this class. You really have to put the effort in as well to earn a good grade. My advice is to keep the information fresh in your mine by studying a little everyday, and definitely go ask for help if you are not understanding something, even try to create a study group if possible.

    Course highlights:

    If anything this course has helped me move away from just memorizing terms and definitions to more conceptual thinking, which is not easy for some. At first, it was really hard to think in this way, they through a lot of terms and definitions at you but they don't want you to just memorize them, you have to be able to see the bigger picture and apply it to a situation they'll throw at you. This class is good for that, but like I said, it all depends on the professor who is teaching it as well.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Study a little bit each day, 2 hours at the least. The material is heavy so you'll want to review the material way before the day of the exam. If you don't understand something go ask for help, it will really benefit you and you have more than enough resources. TA's, your Professor, tutors, and even your own class mates can help you out a lot if you just ask them. Finally, create a study group, over the years, I have found courses to get harder and harder to the point where it becomes frustrating to try to do it on your own. However, I have formed study groups of at least 2 to 3 people and it has made a huge difference in how I learn the material. Your peers may understand something that you are not getting and vice versa.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course was focused on providing an overview on diversity of life on Earth and the processes that impact it. Some of the things we learned about included plants, animals, fungi and evolution.

    Course highlights:

    My highlights of the course was the lab section. The lab was amazing, we got to dissect some animals such as rat, earthworm and fish - looking at its internal structures and studying the anatomy. Also, we got to look at different slides through the microscope for protists, fungi and etc.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    In order to succeed in this class, you have to study for tests ahead of time; there's a lot of material covered in this class that you wont be able to cram it in just few days before a test. You should not only go to class but also re-listen to the lectures to get better understanding. If you don't understand a concept or need help, make sure to go to professor's office hours and get help.
