    Definition:

    nodes = branch points ( divergence from common ancestor . Sister taxa are groups of organisms that share a common ancestor . Rooted tree = has 1 branch point that represents recent common ancestor. Basal taxon = diverged early in history of group. polytomy = multibranch . extant species = species that are currently allive.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend it to students because I know if students are going to major in science, they must take biology. If they aren't, it is still an interesting course to understand the life they are living and the different life forms around them.

    Course highlights:

    What I liked about this class was the amount of help the professors and TAs offer you. Since it is taken during the summer, BIO 116 gets through all of the lectures in 6 weeks. So Dr. Beal condenses the notes and offers many videos and diagrams to help students out with memorization and "synapses". TAs are always willing to help before and after class and are very knowledgeable when answering questions.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do not underestimate the amount of time you need to study and review your notes. Biology is all about memorization, having the ability to recall, and making connections. Before every class, take a peek at the material you are going to be learning that day. Although, the professor might say "I'm not expecting you to know this. This won't be on the exam," just review it a bit where you would be able to recognize it when you see it on the exam.

    | Would recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    The course is fairly difficult. You really have to work hard to do well in the class, but I loved my professor. She was very thorough and was happy to answer any questions. She went a little fast during lectures but I liked that.

    Course highlights:

    You learn a lot about the anatomy of living things in this class, which is largely different from Biology I which was much more about processes inside living things (photosynthesis, respiration, etc)

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Definitely study once a week at the very least. This isn't a class you can study last minute and do well in. Study groups really help, and even though the organizers they make you create in recitation are annoying they really help you too.
