    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Doctor Kelly definitely is an incredible professor. She teaches her class the right way and pushes you to actually know the material. The lab and discussion group were definitely helpful and interacted with what we did in class.

    Course highlights:

    In this course, I learned the fundamental principles of modern biology and I learned how to link patterns and processes to determine how biological levels organization are interconnected. I was able to recognize the cells fundamental unit of life and share basic processes and mechanisms that require coordination in higher organisms.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    This course definitely requires for you to study before and after class. Reading the assigned chapters before class is extremely important so you have an understanding of what Doctor Kelly lectures in class. There are also a lot of terms and concepts that need to be studied after class so that you don’t forget it for the next. Another tip is going to her office hours for any questions. Dr. Kelly has a lot of flexible office hours that make it helpful to understand the material.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course is essential if you are going into Biology or a medical field. Kelly is a great professor when it comes to knowing the material and is very willing to work with you however her exams do not reflect that. You must have a really solid understanding of the material because she tests on knowledge application nothing is straight forward definitions. Study all of the time if you want to pass.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights are leaving the course with a solid foundation in biology and the ability to actually comprehend it. I personally really learned a lot about the citric acid cycle.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    You must study there is no way out of it. Just take a bit at a time every day and you will understand. And take advantage of her office hours, I didn't because of a busy schedule and I wish I had. BUY THE BOOK

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It's a challenging course, I mean it's biology after all. There is a lot of material and important information to cover in a short period of time but it's also very interesting. In addition to that there's always more top learn and different ways to learn it. It's a good course in my opinion but if you don't expect to put in the work effort necessary for this course, I wouldn't recommend it.

    Course highlights:

    I liked learning about cellular respiration and photosynthesis. It was very interesting to learn about the bacteria Serratia marcescens. It was also cool to learn about protein folding, although that was something I found particularly difficult. I haven't finished the course fully as yet but I enjoyed it over all.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the chapters from the book. Review your notes as well as the chapter notes posted, they help so much. And seek out help if you still don't understand something. Put in the time when studying for an exam.
