    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course was extremely rigorous, but also has the reputation to be so. It is a very interesting course if you work hard at it and professor Beaty is arguably one of the most knowledgeable professors on the east coast. She understands so much about the subject of biochemistry but can simplify the concepts in ways that allow her students to understand what is going on. She over prepares her students for their exams which are difficult, but doing well on them only leaves you feeling rewarded and intelligent, and is a definite ego booster

    Course highlights:

    The biggest highlights of the course were the Kreb's Cycle, pyruvate oxidation, and photosynthesis. Knowing the chemical structures of the compounds in these processes (the chemistry) and the ways through which these chemicals are used and transported (the biology) is how you acquire the combination of the two subjects. There is a whole lot to understand about why these chemicals and processes wok the way they do, which is why basic biology and chemistry are pre-requisites for taking biochemistry; in order to more readily try to understand what it going on.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Review class material everyday after a class, and if something is unclear, read the chapter in the book to understand the fundamentals of whatever topics are discussed in class.
