    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Hens was a great teacher and tried to the best of his abilities to explain the course thoroughly.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of the course is how he would relate every lesson back to everyday life to simplify the lesson and clicker questions.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Go over your notes every night before the class for 30 mins -1 hour. Do not be afraid to ask questions, email the professor, attend tutoring and SIP if necessary.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Blum is very hard to follow during lectures. He talks incredibly fast and doesn't allow you to take notes because he flips through the notes too fast He will post the lecture notes later IF you get a whole bunch of people to email him. The course itself is not as difficult if you follow along with your book and regularly study friends. It is smart to see him at his times as well.

    Course highlights:

    This is a general education class so you learn different material at all times. My favorite to learn was the different forms of bacteria. Each lesson lasts about one and a half days before you switch topics. You never really go deep into any topic.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Definitely study with friends and make friends in class. Make sure you go to his posted time to ask about the test questions. Make sure you read the chapters before you go to the class.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    She is a very good professor. Very thorough in how she teaches the material and she's willing to help you, as long as you help yourself.

    Course highlights:

    I learned about the basics of biology. What DNA and RNA was. The steps to make proteins, transcription, translation, and replication. And so much more.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Attend SIP. Make use of the instructor. Don't wait until last minute to ask questions, and if you're stuck use the book.
