    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It is a very interesting course. It discusses evolutionary biology. Professor Armstrong is very passionate after his 20 years at Binghamton. His tests are hard, but the information learn is worth it. It's like the second half of AP biology.

    Course highlights:

    We have learned about why speciation occurs, sex linkage, and why variation occurs.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do not read the text book. Print out his lecture notes and bring them to class. Then go to tutoring to help you apply the information. Lastly, copy the notes in to a notebook.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    The material about plant life and ecology were very interesting and useful for my intended path in the biology field. However, the tests were very hard, and I could never score over a 60 even though I studied heavily.

    Course highlights:

    In this course, you learn a lot about populations and how different factors such as resources can influence populations. Also, ecology and plant form and function were prominent in this course. Towards the end of the course we dipped into functional morphology of skulls and animal form and function along with taxonomy.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    To succeed in this class, attend every lecture and write down any notes that are not provided in the pre-written notes that he provides. A lot of times test questions will come from in class discussion and examples. Also there are surprise pop quizzes often during lecture.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Professor Armstrong really knows how to engage you in the material. The tests can be challenging, but since the course really interested me, studying for the course was actually pretty fun.

    Course highlights:

    The course was very interesting, and I learned a lot about genetics, including meiosis and population mechanics.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Rewrite the notes after every lecture.
