    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Nancy Briggs is a great instructor. she is very passionate about biology and it comes across in her teaching style!

    Course highlights:

    great general knowledge of cells, mitosis, meiosis, metabolism. as well as DNA replication.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    stay on top of reading and studying, so that you don't have to cram a lot before the test. tests are all multiple choice but cover the topics in depth.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    The Biology 112 class I took at PCC, with no surprise had an amazing teacher Mr. Richardson that really breaks down the subject of cell reproduction as basic as possible. This course does contain a lot of material in a very short amount of time, bit as long as you know what the 5 kingdoms are and know where in the animal cell and plant cell everything is located and what does what thats the main concept. Don't take this course lightly though you do have to dedicate quite a bit of time for studying and you will be quizzed weekly on the material that was gone over in the previous class.

    Course highlights:

    I loved learning about the process of cell reproduction and the difference between mitosis and meiosis and the main purpose of each system. This course also contained a lab that was very educational. I had never had much experience with a microscope and being able to learn exactly different cells and seeing them was incredible also different lab experiments we did always kept everyone intrigued from the beginning to the end. With a class mainly of women it was great seeing everyone being able to communicate with each other so positively to solve a problem or joke with each other about how silly it was to over look something.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    What helped me the most and even the teacher suggested this was in lecture I would record the lecture then go home and listen to it about 2-3 more times through out the week then I would pull out my white board that I purchased to help me in the class and draw what makes up a cell and label everything then go through and write out what each part of the cell does. If you can explain the process to someone then you will do awesome.
