    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Dr. Karpel is a hard professor but he pushes you to actually understand the material. He is a great professor and genuinely cares about the success of his students. He always pushes the fact that his office hours are always open for those who need any help or want to review the exam.

    Course highlights:

    I gained a lot of knowledge in this course! I learned so much about the different pathways in the body. I also learned a lot more about meiosis and mitosis than I ever had in high school. I also got a strong base in chemistry as we review the basics at the beginning of the course. Some highlights of the course were the pathways and the meiosis and mitosis lessons the professor taught.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do not slack off! I made that mistake and it cost me. However, if you study and put in a little bit of extra work it really will pay off. Consistently give this course the attention it deserves and it should totally work out just fine!

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course alone is necessary for any future in biology. If you are fortunate enough to attend SUU and have the option of taking it from Dr. Karpel, jump at that opportunity. He is a fantastic instructor who is willing to answer your questions. His teaching style helps the information be engaging and clear.

    Course highlights:

    I gained a great understanding of the cell and its basic processes, especially cellular respiration. The chapters concerning energy creation and consumption were the most difficult, but the most rewarding in my opinion. This course served as a great building block for the future biology courses I'll be taking.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be sure to keep up with the reading and the assignments. If you stay current, you will succeed. Always take advantage of the office hours. If you have any question, even if you think it is a dumb question, go in and ask. You will leave with a much better understanding of the course.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    If you plan on taking this course be prepared to learn almost entirely from the book and get very little from the lectures. Professor Jarvis is very understanding and he will definitely work with you and do his best to elaborate on any topic that confuses you but his lectures tend to be scattered and difficult to follow.

    Course highlights:

    In this course we covered subjects like covalent bonds, the structure and function of cells, respiration and fermentation, and meiosis. By the end of the semester we were barely half way through the book and discussing genetics. I wasn't able to take much knowledge away from this class because I had such a difficult time following along (in the book and the lectures) but if you are the kind of person that doesn't need a lot of explanation in order to understand a topic then this is a great intro to Biology course for you.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    No matter how well-versed you are in academic bull, if you don't read and study the textbook you will not get far in this class. Don't rely on the lectures to teach you what you need to know for the exams. There are a lot of small, in-class assignments that will really help your grade and be prepared to work in groups for almost everything but exams.
