    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It is a great starter level course to learn and understand the basic concepts of human genome and cell biology. It is very important to take this course seriously and really absorb the information as moving into higher level biology classes requires this basic knowledge. Not only that but the information i future courses builds off of this basic info, so it is important to understand it thoroughly.

    Course highlights:

    This course intrigued me due to the vast knowledge I learned about various biology topics. From DNA transcription to Genetics, this course really covers a whole lot of interesting topics. One of my favorite parts of the course were the bonus questions offered in class that allow you to really grasp and understand a concept, while also receiving extra points to help you out in the class.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take time to read, review, practice, and repeat. It is imperative in this course that you study the topics at hand while also reviewing old topics. The homework given in the class is the best learning/practice tool you will get as it replicates exam questions and has the student apply what they know. Take advantage of extra credit opportunities as often as you can, these opportunities not only reiterate topics and give you extra credit, but also sometimes end up on exams and can be useful. Do not be ashamed to take advantage of office hours, supplemental instruction, and tutoring. One thing I wish I did more of was use these resources as it would have undoubtedly gave me the practice I needed to better my grade in the class. I recommend studying two weeks in advance before exams and going over/recopying notes as many times as you can in your own words. Another great tool is thinking about the concepts, and how they can be applied or where they can be applied because often times, exam questions are application based and you need to understand the topics through.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Dr. Sue is an amazing teacher, but the coursework is very difficult. Be ready to study like you never have before. Take advantage of her office hours and she will really help you succeed. She is a very entertaining and wonderful professor.

    Course highlights:

    This course teaches the basics in biology

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be prepared to put in the effort. Write notes in your own words to study.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend if you need this course to graduate. I would not recommend if you do not need it because, in my opinion, I thought it was pretty hard.

    Course highlights:

    This course covers the basics of biology, all the way from the cell to genetics. You will earn all the parts of the cell and how it functions. You will learn all about DNA and how it travels through the body and transforms. And you will learn about genetics and how they affect creatures and their offspring.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would advise anyone taking this course that they should go to every class, and study as much as they can. Take good notes and attend all study sessions.
