    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This class is a requirement for my major, so what makes the big difference is the professor. I would not recommend taking this class with Dr. Jafri because she has given us quizzes at the beginning of class that cover material we learn later in that same class. This is also the only biology class she has taught, because she is normally a chemistry teacher. She often gets confused and gives us wrong information, then corrects it later.

    Course highlights:

    I learned about the different organelles that make up a cell, and the different types of cells. We spent a lot of time on lipid bilayers, studying diffusion and what the bilayer is made of.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    It takes a lot of individual studying because the class is large, and the professor has limited office hours. Make sure you study on your own time, because just showing up to class isn't enough to pass.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This is required for any biology major, so what makes the difference is the professor that teaches the class. I would not recommend taking the course with Dr. Jafri because her teaching style is confusing. She does not go into much detail when teaching, and reads directly off the slides, which she changes very quickly. She does not have scheduled office hours, so it is very difficult to receive help from her. It is very easy to communicate with her though, because she sends emails regularly, and is responds very quickly if you need to reach her. I understand that in a class of 70+ people, it is difficult to tend to the needs of every student, but she does wait ten minutes after class where students can speak to her personally to address any questions or concerns they may have. However, there is often a line, and ten minutes is not enough time to speak to every student.

    Course highlights:

    One of the first things we learned about were the parts of a cell and their functions. We learned about different types of cells, and what kind of organisms they are a part of. We also learned about evolution, and Darwin’s theory of Survival of the Fittest. We are currently learning about chemical evolution, and how that eventually changed into biological evolution.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Attend as many SI (Supplemental Instruction) sessions as you can. This is a study session led by a student who has taken the class in the past, and did well in it. I have found this very helpful because the SI leader is able to speak to each student individually and answer any questions. If there is anything I don’t understand in class, the SI leader will cover it during the session, and give practice quizzes to help us check our understanding. Dr. Jafri also awards extra credit at the end of the semester for any student that attends a certain number of SI sessions.
