    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    My least favorite subject is Science and in this course I earned an understanding and appreciation for Biology.

    Course highlights:

    The lectures were the highlight for me. You learn everything from atom particles to cells and the foundation of life as we know it.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Study! Study! Study! You should study at least an hour a day to be prepared for quizzes that come unexpectedly and for the tests,

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because I feel it is very important for everyone to have a general knowledge of biology. The professor I had has a very unusual way of teaching in which she was very reserved and forced the students to really become more hands on with their learning if they wanted to pass her class. This form of teaching threw many of the students off but eventually we came together as a class and I feel like in the end we learned the material more thoroughly because we were forced to be so hands on.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of what I learned in this class was basic knowledge of biology. How the ecosystem around us works, types of organisms, how they reproduce, what makes up an organisms, cell structures, and basic genetics.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    To succeed in this class I would suggest taking an in class option. This way you will have the opportunity to take in detail notes, interact with classmates, ask the professor to expand on some subject matter, and possibly gain a larger understanding of biology. I would also suggest taking time to read through the chapters thoroughly and doing any online study materials the teacher makes available.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This is a dual credit opportunity available at Randall High School through Amarillo College. Mrs. Usnick teaches biology one and two giving great insight not only of textbook knowledge but personal knowledge as well. This class helped me figure out my future career path and let me experience laboratory experiments as well as a wonderful genetics conference that informs students of current scientific research in the fields of stem cell and CRISPR.

    Course highlights:

    I personally liked the days when the class went to Amarillo College for the entire day performing different quanititative labs to further textbook learning and to give students hands on learning with different lab equipment.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    You must be invested in this class. There is no slowing down in material, but it is so worth it. The knowledge gained is uncanny and the teacher makes sure you know what you're doing. Make sure you do your work and don't procrastinate (at least not too much). Dependent upon your learning style, I found it helpful to read the textbook if I had trouble understanding something or just wanted reassurance in the subject.
