    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Dr. Smith is such an inspiration to those who are struggling. He is a retired Air Force Captain who truly cares about all his students. When I went to his office for help, he sat me down on his comfortable couch, which I believe helps students be less nervous being in an instructor's office. He asked about myself and my story. I explained to him how I ride the bus to class and I am a recovering addict and he did not place judgement on me in any way. He instead gave me words of encouragement. I passed with a B, which I never would have got without his inspiration. I also made the Dean' List, I credit him for that.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights were on plant's and how they breathe and utilize oxygen. I never had biology and I am a high school drop out. I leaned to understand how plants manufacture glucose. They close there portal hole at night and conserve carbon dioxide via the Krebs Cycle. Now whenever I am sitting on my balcony, I never look at my plants the same way. I laugh at how I actually visualize what they are doing at that moment down to the cellular level. If it was not for Dr. Marc Smith I would just take plants and leaves for granted.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    My advice is prior to going into this course would be to first have an appreciation for science and seriously want to learn Biology. Studying matter all the way down to its cellular level is never easy. I suggest they utilize all their resources their school has to offer. Seriously, I hope after taking this course you are inspired to continue in the field of Science.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The textbook that was used was really great. It was easy to read and understand and the class included videos to help teach the concepts.

    Loved learning about DNA! We also learned about mitosis and meiosis, cancer, forensics, cloning and a lot of other interesting topics. Some of it was familiar from high school but at a different level.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    STUDY! Read the chapters, watch the videos and make sure that you understand the concepts.
