    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Kinkle is a prime example of a teacher that is excited about what he is teaching. He cares that students in his class learn and he does so much more than just read words off of a lecture slide. He wants you to do more than just memorize material but actually know the material.

    Course highlights:

    I liked that we worked in groups often. It gave you a chance to learn by teaching others and it also gave you a chance to learn from someone else if you didn't completely understand something that we had been going over. I learned a lot about plants, and the krebs cycle, and the citric acid cycle, and HIV and so much more.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do your learning outcomes. If you don't do your learning outcomes, you will not succeed in this course. I also encourage you to literally draw everything. Dr. Kinkle often does concept checks over materials that you have been learning about so drawing will help with that and it will help you understand the material a little bit more.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    If you are going to take this course, do not take it with Kinkle. He is very snobby in the way he teaches and he believes that everyone should learn the same way, the way that he is teaching you. The course itself is a necessity for many majors but if you take it please do all of your coursework and start studying in advance.

    Course highlights:

    This is largely the basics of biology. It's mainly about cells and different organisms but it is very in depth. There is so much going on inside of your body and you learn all about it. Mitosis, meiosis, diffusion, osmosis, function groups, etc. It crosses over with chemistry in a lot of cases.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do all of your work. Go to SI sessions. Get a tutor. Study at least a week in advance because the class isn't that bad but the test questions are worded in a very weird way and they can be very weird, specific things that you only talked about one time in class.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    If you plan on being a Bio major, you're required to take this course. If you need a natural science course for another major, take this class. You learn so much in a short semester and remember quite a lot. The teacher is great and is willing to make sure you know the material.

    Course highlights:

    You learn everything from cellular division to DNA replication in the first semester. It is a really detailed course and a lot of material, but it is definitely worth it.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do the learning outcomes before each class, they really do help. Start studying the material at least one week before the exams. It is kind of time consuming, but it is worth the time.
