    | Would recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I took AP Bio and this was mostly an expansion on that class. It doesnt go that much more into detail and is more of a review course. I would still recommend taking this before the second MCDB

    Course highlights:

    We learned of DNA, chemical structure of cells and cell structures, of transcription and translation. We also learned a lot of proteins.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the textbook, talk to your teachers, engage in class.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class to anyone who enjoys cellular biology. Hopefully you have taken it priorly in high school, and that's how you'd know. It is definitely good to have a background of knowledge in order to succeed. At the same time, going to office hours would help. The teachers are very interested in what they do and very knowledgeable. I learned a lot from the class. It wasn't so hard that I felt like I was going to fail. It is a good prerequisite class to take before any upper level biology courses. The instructor spoke slow enough and answered any questions in a detailed manner.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight was that the class covered a lot of previous knowledge that I learned in High School. It helped me to solidify mob understanding. Also, there was a lab that went with the class, which really helped to put the lecture lessons into action. It was great working with lab partners and learning while in collaboration with others. I learned from the other students. Being in the lab made sense of any difficult to grasp concepts. I learned how genes work, such as how genotype effects phenotype. I learned how things are discovered in the lab, and what it would be like to do research.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    My advice would be to do a lot of practice tests, as often times the tests are not reflective of solely the notes and textbook readings. Get a tutor or help from other students in the class. Studying in a small group setting really helped me, so I could figure out where I was confused, and which concepts I was neglecting to review on my own. Form a good relationship with the professor, because class size is large and it can be easy to get by unnoticed. You are responsible for your grades, and the teacher will not try to help you unless you go out of your way for it.
