    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Honestly, if you’re not a biology major, I’d avoid this class. Dr. Artim is a nice person, but he doesn’t do the teaching, the TA does. And that’s really where most of your difficulty will come from. As it stands right now, there are two TAs: Dylan and Lee. I would take Dylan if I could, as he’s easier. Lee’s a nice person, but tough when it comes to the class. You’ll be doing most of your learning outside of class on your own. Focus less on taxonomy and a lot more on the anatomy of the animals themselves. That was my main mistake, and if I had known that, I would have come out with a higher grade. The first practical is always the hardest, and the class gets easier as the semester goes on. Don’t be put off if you fail the first practical - almost everybody does.

    Course highlights:

    I liked the dissections a whole lot. Be prepared to get your hands dirty in this class, dissections are every class period. If you’re a visual learner, then the dissections will be very helpful. Be sure also, once you’re done with the dissections, to go to every table and check out the jarred specimens.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Study. Study hard. I dedicated more study time to this class than any other classes I took this semester, by far. If I had to pick between two things to study for, this class always won top priority. Definitely study the PowerPoints and base your Flashcards off of those. Lee’s quizzes are based on the info in the presentations. Also, in class, go around to the specimens and see if you can identify them; what phylum, class, subclass, etc.

    | Would recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course if you take the biology of animals class along with this lab because the lab somewhat covers the same information at the same time as the class. This makes is easy for studying because you will already be familiar with the information.

    Course highlights:

    Highlights from this course would include being able to dissect different specimens, learning the different facts and taxonomies of so many different animals. You also gain information that could be used for future science courses.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    In order to succeed in this course you need to study. If you do not read the information on your own then by the time practicals come around you will not do well. Flashcards are a great study tool for this class.

    | Would recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I highly recommend this course for its push towards academic excellence. Because of the in depth knowledge needed for this class, students learn better study habits and take on more responsiblitlity as a now prospering, young adult.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course are the hands on dissections of the many different species that are presented to the students. For the first time, I was able to use a microscope and dissect an animal-something I had never done in high school before.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    In order to excel in this tough course, strong study habits and firm goals are needed. This is not a class that you can skip or one that you can put off. It is best to stay ahead, and you can never review your material enough.
