    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It's a great course, while you're expected to have a little background knowledge in biology it's a great intro to the subject, many examples! Benevides is a great profesor, and goes beyond in explaining everything. He stops to make sure everyone understands, and as long as you do hw you'll do great!

    Course highlights:

    I got a more thorough understanding about eukaryotic and prokaryotic cells! Also learned a lot about reactions; endergonic, exergonic, spontaneous, etc. and phylogenetics, which was always a little confusing to me.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do ALL your homework! Try to get the highest grade possible, actually take your time! Study the old exams, as well as power points and go to SI!

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This class is good as long as you are able to keep up with the course work. It is very fast paced and she doesn't waste anytime in lectures. Make sure you complete every single assignment, because she will only let you make up one and they are impossible to come back from if you get a bad grade on more than one.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course are being required to go to the biology studio. It definitely helps you to focus on the homework without any distractions. Plus, the studio staff are very helpful and knowledgeable.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you know how to study best for you. Learning definitions are not important; understand the concepts of the class.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Find a different science to fill your requirement, or atleast don't take it online

    Course highlights:

    Easy class, pretty boring, but easy

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    This class is really hard to take online. Even if it is an easy-level Bio class, it was difficult.
