    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I definitely recommend Prof Reddy! She makes the concept 100x easier to understand, her powerpoints are detailed yet simple enough to convey all the information.

    Course highlights:

    Prof Reddy was very generous with grading as there was usually extra credit opportunities or clicker points as buffer points in case you don't do well on the exams.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the chapters before lecture. Review the power points for exams.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Reddy is very smart and detailed in her course. She also takes her time to throughly explain any question you have about the coursework. Her exams are not definition but rather test your understanding. However, she is very generous on extra credit.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot about the basics of biology and that you don't need to put in 24 hours to understand. Reading the slides that she provides will give you enough knowledge to pass her course.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Pay attention to deadlines because most of the work is due online. Study her practice exams of prior years because she often reuses questions (just mixes up the words) but if you have a clear understanding you will answer correctly. Show up to class for your clicker questions and especially for your DD activity. There are surveys she offers complete those for extra points!

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    You get all the points for a question or none of the points.

    Course highlights:

    No matter how hard you study, doing better than an 85% is just luck.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    The class is really hard and will make you question your interest in science, but the professor is awesome & always helpful.
