Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Dr. Harris was an interesting and genuine professor. He's South African and recieved his Ph.D in Zoology. He has lots of experience and interesting stories that he tells during lectures that goes along with the material; therefore, making it a lot more interesting and easier to understand. BIOL 1200 at East Carolina covers a variety of topics, but mainly focuses on developing a solid foundation in ecology, genetics, and general concepts within biology. To me personally, this course is probably one of the most important Biology classes students will take as an undergraduate. This starting course provides a solid foundation of material that will significantly aid you in your future BIOL classes. In order to pass this class, a lot of studying was needed. He gives you all the material and resources to study, but he doesn't spoon feed answers to you. Dr. Harris is the professor that helped me develop a good work ethic.

Advice for students:
For the most part, this course is completely conceptual. A lot of the material learned in this course changes depending on the information presented/question being asked. This is not a class that you can cram for before the night of the exam. I would suggest revising the material everyday after class in order to completely learn/absorb the material, so when it does come to studying for the exam, you won't be completely lost.
