    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This is a great course even for those who are not majoring in Biology. It gives a great, basic overview of organisms like animals, people, plants, and more. If you are curious about Biology, definitely take this course to see if you would be interested in pursuing it as a major!

    Course highlights:

    I had an awesome teacher for this course, which definitely made class more enjoyable. I am a Biology major, so it was a requirement, but I still enjoyed the content of this class. It gave me a better insight into what I may want to pursue as a Biologist.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    You definitely need to study! The course is not overtly difficult, but it is a lot of information to retain. Take notes, study, go to class, READ THE BOOK, and communicate with your teacher(s). They may offer extra credit opportunities, which are always a blessing in college.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course for the simple fact that it covers the basics of all science and health related fields. The professor demonstrates her points that appeal heavily to visual learners such as myself, and the course is even easier to learn if one had taken AP Biology in high school. Overall it was very fun, engaging, and enriching. Also, if you are more of a lecture/book learner than a math-inclined learner, it is a very enjoyable course, as there is little math.

    Course highlights:

    An interesting and appropriate highlight of this course was that, if one took AP Biology in high school or remembered basic principals from an earlier class, the material learned in this class builds on the material more. Not enough to overwhelm you, but interesting facts and tidbits that were deemed "too advanced and nothing to worry about" in high school. It made the course engaging and made me more interested in continuing to see what other "behind the scenes" aspects of basic-level biology went unlearned.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Sit in the front of the classroom and take careful notes of the material. If there is something you are confused on or did not understand, the professor provides supplementary videos, notes, and multiple extra credit opportunities in addition to the book you must buy for the class. It is very hard to fail the course, in other words.
