    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course is difficult, but not impossible as everyone makes it out to be. It takes a lot of dedication and hard work. However, you would not be taking this course if you did not plan to attend some kind of medical school of some sort, so this is great practice for that! I believe that Lewis is the best teacher to take for this course. However, she only teaches it in the Summer.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course would be most of the same stuff you learned in your high school biology course, but it just takes each concept way deeper. The first part mainly focuses on cells. The you will get to Photosynthesis and Cellular Respiration, which is the most difficult part of the course.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    You will have to study everyday. I would highly recommend buying the study guide that goes along with the book. It was very helpful for me. You just have to break the material down until you understand it. If you stay with it and work hard, you will be fine.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    It is a very good class if you are looking into the medical, pharmaceutical, dental, or nursing field. The class is very difficult and requires effort, but prepares you for future courses.

    Course highlights:

    The course was very interesting and you learn a lot about microbiology that you don't travel the opportunity to learn in a high school setting or lower level college biology classes

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Record lectures, go to every class, and go to office hours and SISS sessions

    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course is specific for those pursuing a pre-med, or close to, type of degree. It is very difficult and requires extensive studying and note taking. I would only suggest this class to students who have recently taken a biology class and did well in the said class or students who are truly gifted in the subject of biology and love to learn.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot and I was given many extra opportunities to improve my grade which really helped also improve my knowledge

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Study and never fail to read. Always go to class and take the best notes possible. Find a study partner.
