    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    The lab usually lowers students grades even if they have done well in the lecture based off of how hard that the Teaching Assistants do their grading. The assistants are told to make the grading extremely difficult so that students must try in the lab; however, because they are simply older students the power goes to their head and they take advantage of their position.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course were certainly the amount of knowledge about cellular biology. We as living beings go through a lot of developmental differences and continually replenish our cellular substrates. This class does a good job at explaining the components of the cell, their associated mechanistic features, and the development of these features.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    There is no book for this class. All of the information is learned through research and wikipedia (recommended by professor) and this makes the determination of useful information difficult. The best advice to succeed is to do all of the weekly homework and attend every single class. The class itself can be difficult but even missing one class, you will find yourself in too large of a hole to dig out of.
