    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Depending on a person's work ethic, you can either do very well or very poorly in this class. You definitely need the textbook and have to keep up with the readings to do well. I would suggest going to office hours or tutoring as soon as you do not understand a concept and get additional help. The course is difficult, but manageable if you are proactive enough.

    Course highlights:

    The biggest points of this course were learning about how genetic material is replicated and how genes are passed along. The beginning of the course is all about how genetic material is replicated and is a big part of the course all through the duration of the course. Learning how genetic material is passed on through generations was definitely my favorite part because I could relate that to everyday life, which made it much more interesting.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do not get behind in your studying for your course, it is a necessity! Also, do not be afraid to ask for help or go to office hours when you are confused. Going to class is a must as well, there is a lot of material covered per class and you cannot afford to miss it, some parts of the lectures are not covered in the book.

    | Would highly recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I highly recommend this course, because the information taught is a great stepping stone for students that are trying to decide a specific biology concentration to focus on for their major. It is all about cells and DNA, what makes us, us. Not to mention Dr. Goodwille is by far one of the best teachers I have had during college, because she really takes an interest in what she is teaching, engages with her students and truly wants each student to succeed.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights would have to include basic cellular make up of DNA for the first section of the class. From there on it goes through each step of DNA replication, including transcription and translation. Finally the course ends with Mendelian genetics and inheritance factors.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be prepared for the studying, as for assignments, Dr. Goodwille does not assign too much extra work. The course load simply has a lot of material and for most students it is the start of introducing harder vocabulary they may not be familiar with in biology up to this point. Stay on top of each concept and really try to grasp to material, this makes is much easier.

    | Would recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    She's extremely eccentric but she knows what she's talking about. She's very helpful, always has office hours, and holds exam reviews for every exam.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights were the in class activities; they definitely helped me keep up in class! I've learned everything about how DNA is made, cell division, mutations, gene expression, Mendelian principles, and so much more.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you're considering taking genetics I definitely recommend taking it with Dr. Goodwillie!
