    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I definitely recommend this course to anyone interested in majoring in science, specifically Biology. However, I do not recommend this professor, simply because she only reads off the PowerPoints and does not explain well.

    Course highlights:

    As a biology freak, I genuinely enjoyed this course, it taught me a lot about the science of life and went into further detail from what I already knew. There were not many assignments, which made the exams worth 80% of the grade.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Study, study, study! Reading the textbook and expanding your knowledge is really the only way to do well in this course.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    This course is amazing; get to know cell structures, cellular respiration and photosynthesis, cell division, DNA replication and protein synthesis.

    Course highlights:

    I get to know that how an organism generally works form the most fundamental level, the cellular level. What makes an organism alive; the cellular respiration and fermentation make the energy ATP which provides every organism the energy for survival. How an organism reproduce, which involves mitosis and meiosis; how does genetic information pass from one generation to the next generation, which involves DNA replication. Protein synthesis is most interesting, which tells us how a genotype is expressed through phenotype.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Just follow you professor since the test is all from the lecture anyway. Spend a little time on what you did not understand and watch videos about topic. Try not to miss any class.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    A good professor sets you up for success and this is exactly what Professor Canseco does. She is concise and doesnt feel your head with passionate rants that she will never test on. Her power points are direct and you know what is on the test by carefully outlining your notes and/or study guide with the information in the power points. She posts them online well in advanced so you can get ahead easily and the tests, are multiple choice and short answer if you're taking her class once a week. If youre taking her class more than oncd a week then it's just multiple choice. She also reviews the material the week before a test. She will go through all the steps of cellular respiration from glycolosis to oxidatice phosphorylation. She goves over photosynthesis in depth and highlights what's important to remember and focus on.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot about living systems at a cellular level . Also I developed an understanding on the importance of cells and their life cycles and how they can function together to preserve life.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Study your power points and look over your tests. There are no trick questions you can trust in that.
