    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would not recommend taking it in 8 weeks because it is back to back and you loose the quality of your term paper etc... It is difficult to do it all in such a short time because the due dates are back to back. This is instructor is a tough grader, it is hard to know what she is looking for at all times and it may be the way the question is being asked, it is a bit general at times so she will point out what she was looking for and deduct points. However, if you put a lot of effort into it.. you will most likely get a B. To get an A, make sure you score high on quizzes and on the discussion board.

    Course highlights:

    You do learn a lot when you are reading. You will probably do a lot better if you had intro to biology prior to taking this course only because they sort of skip the basics and jump into it without explaining it in depth. Assuming you already know what it means. For Example: Kingdoms, simple biology definitions etc.. There are some words that they introduced and they will provide the meanings.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    A lot of reading, several chapters per week from two different books. The questions can be a bit confusing because one book says one thing and the other say another thing. Requires a lot of time (several hours) reading, writing and taking a quiz every week. You have a ten page term paper and a ten page literature review paper. Two writing exams and two multiple exams plus all those quizzes.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Does not hand back work or tests in a timely manner.

    Course highlights:

    She does not explain things very well, you really have to be prepared to teach yourself at home.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    I was desperate to take this class asap, but I would NEVER take her class again.
