    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It is a great course for two reasons. First being thay Dr. Davis is an exceptional professor who makes it his goal every day to make the material interesting and comprehendable. He only wants success for his students. Secondly, the material is super important to know if you are pursuing a career in science and this course will prepare you for any graduate program you enter in the science field.

    Course highlights:

    Besides Dr. Davis' incredible teaching ability making the course very interesting and fun, the highlights were the grades! He truly taught us everything we needed to know in lecture and the exams were a reflection on the material we studied. No suprises, which is wonderful for a change. I learned so much detail about the biochemical processes that occur in the human body, the amino acid sequences, and the structure and function of proteins.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    The class is not boring by any means so give it your full attention. The professor will notice and he will push for you to do better and defintely help boost your grade if your deserving of it. Read over your notes sometime during the week and most certaintly contact him if you have questions. Him answering my questions made it very clear and i did very well in the course.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend it because Dr. Davis is a very smart and interactive professor. He makes it interesting and therefore you are more motivated to pay attention and retain more information. Its not by any means an easy course but its rewarding and is set up to properly prepare biology and chemistry majors for graduate school programs.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course was probably getting to cover so much information but in a non-rushed matter and in a fantastic classroom setting. Dr. Davis always get you interested and it was a course that you would walk out of remembering a plethora of usable information for the future.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Go to class, make sure you take well written notes, and just study a little bit every day. Obviously everyone has a different schedule and it would be irrational to think that everyone has the time to just sit and study biochemistry every day for a while, but try to squeeze a little in. You'll be surpised how much it helps and if you do not understand something, make sure to speak to Dr. Davis. He a great teacher and one of the few professors nowadays who are actually excited to have you do well.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because the professor is very helpful, and difficult topics and concepts are explained thoroughly.

    Course highlights:

    I learned about the principles of biochemistry, pulling from my base in general biology, anatomy and physiology, and (most extensively) in chemistry.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Try to take at least one semester of organic before taking this course. Although it is not a prerequisite, a basis in understanding the structures and naming of organic molecules (as well as principles of stereochemistry) is greatly beneficial to understanding basic biochemistry concepts.
