    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    The course material itself is interesting, especially if you're majoring in Biology or Wildlife Biology. You will need a rudimentary understanding of statistics and simple algebra in order to succeed.

    Course highlights:

    My favorite part of the course was learning about how new species arise (through speciation). A good understanding of this course is absolutely ESSENTIAL for when you take Genetics (BIO2450) later on, especially alongside Functional Biology (BIO1330).

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    You don't necessarily need the textbook-- just using the copy on reserve at the library when you need to study for exams. (This is true of Ott, at least, since he did not assign us MasteringBiology online work.) I also cannot stress enough the importance of flashcards: much of your success in here depends on your knowledge of Mendelian genetics and the Hardy-Weinberg Theory. Be very familiar with both.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I personally didn't do well in this course because I wasn't serious about it. If you're in this class you have to care and work very hard for your grade. It's a lot of work and reading but if you do it all and not wait till the last minute, you'll get the grade you deserve.

    Course highlights:

    Some things that were interesting to learn were the different types of group ecologies, the cell cycle, and how Darwin formed the evolution theory.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Look over your notes at least 3 times a week and READ THE BOOK!

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course was very interesting and informative. If you are looking to learn more about the human body and how we have evolved over time and just how we work this is the course for you.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course was learning how the species are interconnected and seeing the traits that had evolved over time

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    The best advice I would give is to pay attention in class. The book offers a ton of information but the teacher is able to break down the information into a form that is easily comprehendible.
