    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Professor James has already influenced my love for biological studies, even with taking the course for a few weeks now. She is an amazing professor and describes the notes very thoroughly, giving each student the opportunity to fully comprehend the material. She also gives the chance to go visit her or a "Bio Cat", to discuss the material if the student is still struggling to understand the material.

    Course highlights:

    I learned the cell cycle more in depth than I have in previous Biology courses. She also provides examples of studies she has per taken in or graduate students. She related these experiments to the Scientific Method chapter of the course.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do not be afraid to ask questions or go visit Professor James. She is a welcoming woman and is willing to go the extra mile in order to better your understanding of the biological processes.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I took this class online (although he also teaches on campus). He was not comfortable using canvass as an online platform, and his course material was very unorganized online. Submitting assignments was inefficient. During our online Q&A, he spent most of the time fumbling with the software he was using and the session was cut short by his wife. Diagrams/Pic used for testing purposes were low resolution and not congruent with those in our lab manuals.

    Course highlights:

    I picked up a lot of vocabulary, but that is about it as far as material. I did get to employ my problem solving and interpersonal skills as I found Roychowdhury to be defensive about how material and assignment drop-boxes were organized on his course page, and condescending in response to absolutely every question or concern he was presented with outside of live chat.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Pick another instructor if you can. Otherwise, prepare to give this class priority over everything else and work ahead of the syllabus as you'll need the extra time to clarify his instructions or troubleshoot the inevitable and frequent technology fails in this course.
