    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Advice for students:

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It was a good class if you pay attention. She is a very good teacher and knows what she is talking about. I was able to get to know her more personally throughout the semester after going to her office hours twice to go over past tests; which helped as she knew my name in a lecture class size of about 240 students. She is very understanding if she sees that you put in an effort and work and don't make random excuses or lies for why you are not getting your work done.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot of biology (obviously); a lot was review from my honors biology class sophomore year. It was still a good class, as you do learn a lot still.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    I recommend getting a textbook and reading all of the assigned readings on your own while taking notes. Then in class take notes on her powerpoints, that way you have two separate things to study notes off of.
