    | Would recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It is an incredibly important course in regards to foundational biology, however be prepared for massive amounts of memorization. Professor Holloway is wonderful in regards to teaching, he can go through notes relatively quickly and in general, the course is rather fast in regards to pace, however, with studying and completion of homework, it should be no problem!

    Course highlights:

    The lab associated with this class is extremely helpful in the overall comprehension of the structure and function of different organisms. It works with much more specific plants, fungi, and animals, and really helps in tying together what was taught in class with hands on studying of the organisms.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    This course requires a large amount of memorization and studying. Overall, the pace is pretty fast, which makes sense considering the amount of information covered (dinosaurs, evolution, plants, fungi, animals, bodily functions, etc.) and the powerpoints used in class are gone through very quickly. Just make sure to complete your homework, take notes during the work, and study for every exam (attend SI sessions!!) and you should be perfectly alright!

    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Dr. Holloway is a kind and compassionate person, however the way that the course is run is a bit confusing to follow. The bulk of the course is online, and I learned more from the textbook than I did from any of the professor's lectures. Besides reading the textbook and completing the post-lecture assignments, there are only exams that go in the gradebook. Dr. Holloway's lectures are fast paced.

    Course highlights:

    I felt that the class was mostly based off of plant science and evolution.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    You must be willing to study a lot on your own and prepare for any part of the chapter that could be on the test.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    The information was very interesting and Peggy is a teacher that you have to learn to love. The one thing I didn't like was she decided to give us written exams and they were really hard. Other than that I loved the class.

    Course highlights:

    We learned about four main topics. We talked about evolution, plants, animals, and ecology. I'm a bio-medical science major and I loved learning about plants. The different types and what kinds came later in evolution. I found it all really interesting to see which plants are considered to be more dominant. I can now go outside and tell people things that a lot of people do not know about plants.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Going to class is a must for this course. She often puts things on exams that she covers in lecture but aren't covered in the book. It also takes a lot of studying. The lab is also helpful so I would encourage to take that very seriously.
