    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Yes! But be prepared to do a lot of studying! Dr. Winemiller gives great resources and her office hours are great, but the exams can be difficult. She puts online pictures and study guides to her lectures as well as other sites to help you study. Be sure to never get behind and read your text book and you will be fine. This goes for the lab portion as well, you will need to be updated on information for the labs and the lab quizzes. Depending on the TA, the lab communication can be spotty, but if you go to Dr. Winemiller she is usually pretty helpful with what to do and who/how to contact the TA better.

    Course highlights:

    This course was extremely different than what I had expected in the way that I learned a lot more about the anatomy, circulatory/nervous system, and repertory system of animal and sea life! Even though the class was different than what I had expected, it was still pretty neat learning about the variety of life (mainly marine) and how they actually function (for example starfish). The labs are fun and fairly simple, lots of dissections!

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    READ YOUR TEXTBOOK! No matter what other people may say, read your text book and do the text book quizzes! Dr. Winemiller also gives a study "test" book, I personally found those really helpful. She will also give you last years exam, be sure to test yourself about 2 weeks BEFORE the exam so that you can study on the material you have issues with. She will also give new information the lecture right before the exam, so tackle anything you don't know before you get to those last few lectures. If you have any issues talk to Dr. Winemiller and go to office hours. She will help you understand things and what to focus on studying for the exam.

    | Would recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    She is very nice professor that will be willing to help you. All you have to do is take initiative to go to her. She is patient and will walk you through material you don't understand. She also does an extra credit system that does pay off so don't miss class because you miss opportunities to get extra credit that goes towards the final grade.

    Course highlights:

    Before this class, I only took one class of Biology in High School and was never exposed to it again till I took BIOL 107. It was a challenging course that required fair amounts of studying to be done, but nothing was crazy difficult. Throughout the course, I learned many things I never learned in High School and was interesting to say the least. The grading is a little tough, but never unfair.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't miss a single class. One lecture covered many things and if you miss one, you miss an entire set of questions on the exams. Also, take very thorough notes. I recommend you take notes the old-fashioned way with pen and paper because it allows to you take side notes of important things the professor says that are not on the Power Point slides.
