    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Dr. Sheppard is in no way interactive or interesting. He simply reads the slides on the screens in a monotone manner and leaves you to do group work.

    Course highlights:

    Microbiological concepts such as enzyme function and cell structure

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do well on the group activities that are completed during class. To study for tests, apply concepts to real-world examples
