This class was tough.
I would only recommend this course to those who take a liking to this kind of material. It is not an easy elective, and it requires a lot of work. That being said, however, I thoroughly enjoyed this class. The professor was wonderful and MORE than willing to help anyone who needed it. She has high expectations and the material is difficult, but as long as you keep up with the lectures and seek guidance where needed, you will do well.
This course allowed me to understand the fundamentals of microbes in human disease. This covered the basic construction of microbes, where they're typically found, what diseases they often cause, and how to treat them. It was fascinating to say the least, and the professor made it all worthwhile.

Advice for students:
I will admit to this course being hard. This should not deter you by any means though. Follow the lectures, take notes, create memory devices, ask questions when you don't understand things, and study the quiz answers once you've completed them (chances are, they'll show up on a test). Also, she sometimes offers extra credit just for being present in class, as well as for answering questions, so it is always a good idea to go.
