    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend this course if you are trying to go into research. It is very informative and it provides a large amount of instruction on facts and theories about how research is conducted, what types of research are more valuable for scientists and how to write a research paper. We had a practice research assignment where we were lead step by step throughout. The other half of the class we conducted our own research and were able to write a research paper. I thoroughly enjoyed the process and all the people I worked with were very nice and helpful.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of the course are that it teaches you how real research is conducted, mostly at College settings I must say, different techniques for conducting research and how to write a research paper. There were four tests, which included a cumulative final of all twelve chapters covered. The first part of the semester we wrote and conducted an instructor led research, the second half we did research on something of our interest (called "current research", but still with a group. The paper for the current research was the final paper. I learned how to write a research paper and what constitutes ethical research and many other things. There is so much to learn in this course, so much information, and i tried my best and succeeded in the tests.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Definitely take notes during class, even if it is in your laptop or hand-written notes. This is a class where you don't want to miss class if you want an A or B average. There is a lot of material covered and some is not made clear until the professor gives an example. I'd say go over your notes at least twice a week too. As for the professor, I highly recommend Mrs. Saponjic; she is very organized and her examples are very concise and understandable. She is also very charismatic and always wiling to help you. On a side note, the professor told us not to buy the text, because it is expensive, and that her notes would be enough. I honestly had moments where I wished I had purchased it, mostly towards the end of the course, where it all gets to higher degree of difficulty. But if you don't miss class, just as i did, it is possible to pass by just going to class and taking notes.
