    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend it because it covers basic topics in biology and is a good introduction.

    Course highlights:

    We started off learning about the different macromolecules, basic chemistry, and how scientists believe that the first cells and first eukaryotic cells developed (by endosymbiosis). We also learned about cellular respiration, photosynthesis, and then finished up by learning about genetics, genetic disorders, and evolution.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Study off of the power points if you are short on time for studying for the tests, the textbook has very few answers. If you do not understand a concept, use the textbook to clarify or go to the lab instructors. Also, attend S.I. sessions!!

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The professor is entertaining with his jokes and tries to make you think. This isn't an easy class with all the information being thrown at you, but you will definitely learn the material as long as you pay attention during lecture and read the book before class.

    Course highlights:

    The way I view the world has change. I view humans as organisms that are part of the tree of life where every little thing we eat and the things we come in contact with influences the way they are today. For example, who knew how important eating a piece a bread is in glycolysis or that individuals express a disease based on a dominant or recessive alleles. Life is so interesting!

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be prepared to thoroughly study for this class. It isn't a walk in the park, but if you pay attention in class and read the textbook you should be able to pass the class with a minimum of a B. If in the event there are concepts that are hazy, don't be afraid to ask for help from a tutor or your lab instructor.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    For pre-professionals looking to get into health, I highly recommend you look into the professor who's teaching. I loved this course and it's a topic of interest to me. My suggestions is reading the textbook and understanding the material because it's information you cover in your higher division courses.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course is learning the cell anatomy and physiology as well learning subjects such as cellular respiration and replication.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you study and read before every lecture to grasp the concepts! The longer you procrastinate and further along you get in the course the more confusing all the information will be to you.
