    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This class is a general biology class, emphasis on general. You're going to be going over a little but of everything and it is going to feel like a lot. Especially while studying for the final there is just so much to review and it may seem to run together but going to the professors office hours is extremely encouraged and she will leave you feeling prepared if you wish to continue on and take bio 112

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot throughout this class. there is no exaggeration when I say every subject that could be taught in general biology was taught.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you study! Studying and time management are both extremely important if you want to pass this class, and keeping track of the online homework assignments.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    This was the first college class I had taken in 10 years and the first science class in 15 years. I was really concerned with how much biology I would remember from 10th grade. This class was a perfect introductory class. My teacher made the class especially easy

    Course highlights:

    This class covers the basics of biology--cells and the definition of living organisms. There is a little chemistry that must be understood, such as diffusion, ions, and polar/nonpolar molecules but understanding these things help to grasp the function of cells.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Mr. Hall gave a study guide before every test. Completing the study guide is essential to passing the test. I recommend not taking this at the main campus to avoid more competitive health students.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Mrs. Lawrence is always eager to help her students succeed. While lecture class sessions are dominated by reading from a presentation and elaborating on the material, she really shines where she is willing to provide extensive help outside of the classroom. She is quick to respond to emails, questions, concerns, etc. and willing to work with a student in concern with their assignments.

    Course highlights:

    Most of the material I was already familiar with by having a very thorough biology teacher in high school; however, I now have a much better understanding of the nuances of concepts, especially concerning cellular respiration, DNA, and the different kinds of RNA. With her guidance, I've aced every quiz and test except for the first three where I was still getting my footing and learning time management.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take notes. Take all of the notes. It is imperative that you take them and do the online coursework associated with the class. It has plenty of resource material you can practice with so that you can sharpen your memory and breeze through the tests after possibly several different iterations of it through studying.
