    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    The professor is very resourceful and helps out where he can. He also provides a SI, supplemental instructor, who of course is under the professor through certification/completion of his class.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights for me were student participation. When we engage he excitedly engages back which makes learning tough concepts easier.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Dr. Benevides is an interesting guy for sure. We cover several chapters in class so I recommend any note taking gadgets.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend, because the professor focuses on big ideas and concepts, rather than the nitty-gritty details. It makes studying for this class easier, in my experience.

    Course highlights:

    The most interesting, yet most difficult section was about the nervous system.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I advise that you truly study new material as soon as you learn it. Do this so that you are not cramming(it's alot of material) right before a major test.
