    | No strong feelings either way.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    This course is required for many majors. Each section is taught by a different professor, which brings spice to the course. There is no real homework for this class, which was nice. There are only three tests and a lab section.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot about life as we understand it on Earth, the effects organisms have on each other, and how we study and deal with life on this planet. What I have learned in this class have really helped me in other classes, especially other biology classes.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    GO TO CLASS and READ THE BOOK. When you go to study for the test, the three-time exposure you have to the material is invaluable. The teachers post study guide questions at the end of each lecture and these are really all you need to take notes on. The FIRST section is the hardest part. Make a friend in class and study together too!

    | Would recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I think this was a good course. It was split into three sections with three different professors, I thought that this was nice because it made it almost seem like three shorter separate courses rather than one large one!

    Course highlights:

    I gained a further understanding of how biological diversity works, and how the creatures and substances in the planet work together to create different ecosystems.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be ready to take good notes during class, the professors all posted the slides online after the lecture, but they added lot more detail and important information during the actual lecture. Also don't miss class, there were a lot of in class surveys and questions that were counted as extra credit or extra test points, defiantly worth it to get those points!!

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    First of all, this is one of the fundamental entry courses into the curriculum of my major, which is Fisheries and Wildlife Ecology and Management. The course is easy as long as you make it to every lecture (which, honestly, why wouldn't you?) and take notes. If you do this, studying for exams is like nothing at all! All you really do is go over your notes and you're good to go. Because I went to class every day, took notes, and paid attention in class, I honestly did not really need to review.

    Course highlights:

    Despite the fact that a lot of the BROAD and general information in this class (being a fundamental course) had been learned previously in my Biology coursework in high school, I did learna few things: For one, I learned that I'd always been reading an evolutionary tree, or "phylogenetic tree" incorrectly! Secondly, the course was easy to manage and there was a lot of interesting information to learn, even if it was just to recap on a previous biology course!

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    All I can say is that you MUST GO TO CLASS every day and take thorough notes. Not only are you PAYING for this course, but going to class, taking notes, and paying attention will make studying for exams easier and thereby making you more successful and desirable to scholarship committees. Also, I highly encourage you to go to class every day with an open mind ready to learn new things, or even review. If you do not do so, you may not be as successful overall.
