    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    It's basic biology. What you learned about in high school, but more in depth.

    Course highlights:

    You were required to teach yourself the material, do the homework and then ask questions. This course required you to really understand the material.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    You can not just float by. You have to write, do the assignments, and the work. It's hard, but this teacher makes it fun, and once you understand it, it's very fulfilling.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The professor is not only amazing and likeable, but he introduces an interesting way to study: teaching yourself and teaching others. It sounds hard, but you learn the material yourself through the textbook and through videos and through the homework, and if you truly understand it, you could teach it to a classmate. The workload is a bit larger than most classes, but completely worth it once you understand it all.

    Course highlights:

    I gained so much knowledge about the biological processes of animals and humans ranging from DNA and genes to bodily functions such as why you exhale CO2 and water and how your body regulates itself. I've learned about neurons and how the brain actually sends and receives signals and how drugs affect that, I've learned about how the body maintains homeostasis, and much much more.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Pay attention. Take hefty notes and make sure you understand the material enough to teach it to someone else. I never realized how important those things were until we were nearing finals. I did those things and I passed my biology final exam with a 98/100.
