    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class was super interesting, but also difficult. Dr. Breakwell has a lot of personality and is really fun. I learned so many new things I never knew about before!

    Course highlights:

    My favorite part of this class was "Disease Fridays". Every Friday we would learn about different diseases which could be gross at times but was wildly interesting to me. The best part was that we would sing songs about the diseases to help us remember the symptoms, bacteria, cures, etc. Though there was lots of studying required, the information was worth studying!

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    To be honest, I never read the book, it just confused me rather than helped me. However, GO TO THE TA REVIEWS. Test reviews with the teacher's assistants saved my grades.
