    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class is very engaging and interesting, I loved learning about plants and animals. It's so cool to learn about things that surround us in our every day lives, such as plants growing and different biomes and so much more. If you have any interest in plants especially, this is a great course to take. Dr. Holloway is also very passionate about his teaching, and it shows in his lectures.

    Course highlights:

    Some highlights were definitely watching videos about what was being discussed in class. It was awesome to see what were were talking about come to life, one example of that being this video we watched about camouflage. The most interesting thing to me was the different classifications organisms are put into as well, Phylum Mollusca being my favorite (including octopus, cuttlefish, snails, etc.). This was easily my favorite class just because of the fascinating content.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Attending class is the most important thing you can do! This professor gives all the information you need to be successful in his course during his lectures. Also, going over your notes for just a little bit every night helps to improve your memory and really gets the material to stick.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The course is very easy, but the post labs are hard to get a perfect on. There is a quiz every day, making studying for the quiz very important. Some labs are also very long and writing intensive.

    Course highlights:

    The course was not really that great, but there are some cool labs. Some of the stuff the labs required were pretty interesting, and a lot of the work is partner based.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Study for the labs, and make sure you read up on the lab before the lab so you are prepared as they expect you to know what you are doing. Study for every quiz, and remember to do the post labs.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Adam Siders is a great professor! He's extremely helpful with the labs and with any questions you might have. His office hours are very flexible which is useful for anyone that might have a crazy schedule. During the class time he tries his hardest to make it interesting and not boring and to me that is a good enough reason as to why i would recommend.

    Course highlights:

    My highlights from this course was probably the labs where we got to work with chemicals, specifically the enzyme labs. We get to work with yeast and spinach leaves in two different labs and add enzymes to them and test in different environments how fast the reactions will be. It's extremely fun, especially while working in groups.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    To survive this class absolutely do not forget to do the post labs or the library resource assignments! Those two assignments are major keys in your grade and it will really help you out. Also when doing labs try not to leave out details and really pay attention to the lab manuals.
