This class was tough.
This course is required for all freshmen unless otherwise covered by credits from another source. In the this course you learn the basic essentials for biology as well as some clinical correlates (how pharmacy/drugs pertain to the subject). Biology II is a great course to take because what you learn here will definitely help with other classes later on in the more advanced courses required.
Some of the highlights of this course include the dissection of earthworms, sharks, and pigs that were conducted in the lab. Another aspect of this course that was worthwhile were the clinical correlates that were discussed in class. We were able to learn about many everyday drugs such inhalers, insulin, heart medications, and many others. We were also able to use this knowledge and apply them to how they affect the body in collaborations do with other members of the class. In these collaborations, we were given situations and "patients" and we would have to discuss how drugs would affect those people and scenarios and also to explain the medications in laymen terms.

Advice for students:
Some advice would include to start studying early not just the day before the quiz or test. This class is definitely not easy but with proper learning and study skills it make it a mush easier course. Another piece of advice includes going to the review sessions held because the professors give you practice problems and questions that nearly identical to what will be on the tests.
