    | Would highly recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would absolutely recommend this course. It is very difficult, but I think you get a lot out of it. The class covers a lot of information that is very useful.

    Course highlights:

    You learn so much from how plants transport water to how birds are actually reptiles. The course teachers you how some species go extinct and why others experience genetic changes. It is a very good freshman course if you are going into the biology field.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't fall behind. Actually read the textbook and go over the key points. Study every day.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Clay was a very good professor. He knew what he was talking about and he always seemed very excited to talk about it during lecture.

    Course highlights:

    Clay gave us study tips after our first exam. He also used a "chatterbox", I think is what it was called to have interaction with the students. I learned about evolution.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Follow along during class. He uses an questions during class that you answer for points. There were pre-class videos that we had to watch for credit and there were post-class quizzes we had to take. There was also homework due every class period. With Clay, the class has a lot of busywork, but you maintain the information better, too.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    The course itself is rather interesting, but the tests can be a pain. The study guides cover a lot of material and it can be challenging. Furthermore, the in-class portion of the class was rather pointless overall, but attendance was basically required due to clicker questions.

    Course highlights:

    I have always found biology to be a more interesting science simply because a lot of what you learn is tangible and 'makes sense.' This course covered a broad range of topics, all the way from how the first cells gained mitochondria to why different climate zones exist.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be prepared to study and take note taking seriously. For me, I watched the pre-class videos and took notes based on the learning objectives and then took additional notes from the textbook if one portion was not clear in the videos. The classes themselves were not extremely helpful. Furthermore, I would decide whether you want to do the bonus after the first or second test because if you wait until after the third test like I did, you will have one week to do it. Be smart!
