    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Brown is a joke-cracking, fun professor that will keep your attention during class. His tests and quizzes are rather easy, and you can use them to study for your final and midterm. Most of the questions are either straight from the powerpoints or straight from the labs, making this class quite easy and enjoyable, especially if you aren't a huge fan of chemistry or biology.

    Course highlights:

    The final exam comes straight from the previous tests, so if you do well on those, you'll do well on the final! This is a great class to learn about the effects that humans are having on the ever-changing world around them.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you're not especially academically inclined, I would recommend finding someone else in your class who understands a topic you're struggling with. Often fellow students can explain something better to you than a professor did, or maybe you can explain something to them that they don't understand.
