This class was tough.
This course is tough, don’t get me wrong. However, read the textbook, work through practice problems, make study guides, and you’ll find it can be very rewarding and interesting.
Learning about things that happen on a microscopic level inside our bodies is an extraordinary concept to wrap your head around; but once you do, the possibilities are endless. If you’re anything like me, you’ll find yourself trying to impress your friends and family by explaining how you inherited your blue eyes, or why your sibling looks nothing like you or your parents. Finally feeling these concepts click is definitely the highlight of the course.

Advice for students:
Read the textbook, practice with sample questions, and be sure to take effective notes during lectures. Always keep track of the differences in processes between prokaryotes and eukaryotes, and don’t think too much - a lot of what happens in genetics is governed by overarching phenomena that are easier to identify than you think. :)
