    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class gives you so much insight on and about biology. You will leave with a greater understanding when it comes to research and all that it implies to be successful.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course were when we had to do our own research study project on the growth of maize in different soil types. We had our growth chart and had to measure the plants' growth every week. We were comparing the effects of the growth in different soil types and which and evaluating which soil created optimal growth over an 8 week period. I learned how to measure and evaluate research like what is done in the field.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    My advice to anyone who decides to take this course is to read material that is going to be covered the night before class. Read material again that was covered after class as well. This will keep you ready to engage during class. Do not take this in an eight-week course. You will retain the information better and have a considerable amount of time to observe the research project.

    | 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.

    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.
