    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would not recommend taking this course with this professor because her teaching techniques were not conducive to learning. She was always more concerned about what was going on in the classroom such as eating, sleeping, talking, use of electronics, etc., than giving the lecture. She was not open to answering questions and her exam reviews were way too broad. Attendance was mandatory and she is not willing to work with you even if you have extenuating circumstances.

    Course highlights:

    This course was very lecture heavy and you must attend class because anything she says can and will show up on the exam, whether or not it was on the posted powerpoints. You will not slide by without trying or studying.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Study the material as you go. Do not wait till the last minute. Review everything the day she goes over it. Stay on top of the chapters and your lecture notes.

    | Would not recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This professor reads directly from a powerpoint in class, but her exams are much more extensive than what is on these powerpoints.

    Course highlights:

    I did not take much from this course.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    You have to do your own research outside of this course because she does not provide enough resources to succeed.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    While I learned a great deal in this class and ended up with a decent grade, Dr. Freeland-Graves's exams were so difficult and her refusal to help or clarify questions was extremely frustrating and basically resulted in me teaching myself everything. On top of this, her grading scale point system is so obscure and confusing that even the TAs had a hard time telling us how to calculate our grades in the course. She is also extremely condescending toward any non-majors taking the course and even cracks jokes about how stupid she thinks the non-majors are. Take this class with any other professor. Any one of the others would be better than her.

    Course highlights:

    By the end of the course I had learned about the different nutrients and their functions in the body as well as how the digestion system worked.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    She expects you to read the 50+ pages off assigned textbook reading before every class, and I'm sure it's helpful if you have the time to actually do it. I did at the beginning, but when you have senior research papers closing in before graduation it becomes very difficult to do. Realistically though, go to class take notes and study the power points before every class (pop quizzes) and you should be fine.
