    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Although Professor Watkinson is one of the harder professors for BIOL 1105, his tests are challenging but not too challenging. They make you think and apply which helps you learn the information better.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course are his test questions. He always makes one question that is obviously easy and unlike the rest. It's a freebie. I learned a lot about Biology through this course but also myself as a student. I was able to better my studying skills and explored different note taking skills through the course as well.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you read over the class PowerPoints. If you have any questions about topics your confused about or about test questions, I highly recommend you meet with him.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Dr. Rosenzweig is very knowledgeable and very passionate about biology, and that is what I like the most about the class. He always does his best to make himself available to students who need help and he genuinely wants students to succeed in his class.

    Course highlights:

    The most important concepts in this class were photosynthesis, aerobic respiration, the electron transport chain, and the four types of biological macromolecules and their functions. There are a few other concepts, but those four are the foundation of biology and therefore the class.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    The textbook for this class isn't required because he puts a video outline explaining everything in the lesson online.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Dr. Hogan really cares about his students and goes out of his way to make sure they succeed. His active learning classroom really fosters a deeper understanding of biology and makes learning the material more fun and meaningful.

    Course highlights:

    Through this course, I learned the basics of biology that will carry me through my time as a biology major. This course is fun because of the way students get to collaborate on activities and how much better students learn the material as a result.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you keep up with the outside lessons. Really watching the lectures and making sure you understand the information is the best way to succeed. Make sure you start studying for the tests early on as there is a lot of information to cover.
