Always Do the Reading
Background Knowledge Expected
This class was tough.
Many may disagree with me based on his methods, but I learned more in this course and was able to retain more of that knowledge than any other course (except BIOL 251 since it is the second part).
All of the major hormones in the body, where they are produced, what they do, and the diseases associated with too many or too few of these hormones. 250 focused on major systems (skeletal, muscular, nervous, cardiovascular, and endocrine systems being the main ones). It did not cover major organs (except the brain), the GI and respiratory tracts, and the reproductive system (these were covered in part 2).

Advice for students:
Take this during the summer and do not take anything else! It is more compact but he is far more lenient. Study in groups of at least 3 people. He will tell you to do this on the first day and after the first test he will show the class all the people who passed and how many of them (usually all but one or two) studied in groups. Don't be one of the people sitting down because you studied alone and got a low grade. Trust me, until this course I never really studied alone let alone in groups and I'm a 4.0 student. Also, spend as much time in the lab as possible (especially before a lab exam, you can see which models they are taking away to use for the exam).
