    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Although the course is certainly interesting, there are many different approaches that have to be taken in order to comprehend the information well. The vastly different teaching styles of both professors throws the semester off and studying tactics have to be changed drastically in the middle of the semester. If you are not an individual who is flexible in their studying habits, this is not the course for you.

    Course highlights:

    Although it is a difficult course, I learned a lot from it and am still learning a vast majority. The information, since it pertains directly to our own genetic information, is quite interesting. If one really pays attention, the material that is being taught is actually of good value. What I learned most was how to study for the course. This class, especially with these particular professors, really opened my eyes to how limited my study habits were and I had to come up with new ones throughout the semester in order to keep up. I used resources I never needed before in order to do well in this class and it's been a real experience for me.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Start studying early. This is cliche advice, but for this course, it is a must. It is the most difficult course in the university for a reason, where half of it is taught by the Dean of Natural Science and Mathematics himself. Get used to the change in the middle. The first half is very problem-based and requires a lot of practice. The second half is very concept-based and requires a lot of application and memorization; two very different learning and studying methods. I did better in the second half because application is my strong point and problem solving is my weak point. You improve at both in order to do well and make sure to expand your study habits.
