    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it applies not just to exercise science majors but also to just how the natural body works with exercise and normal day to day movements and how important it is to understand.

    Course highlights:

    I gained a lot from this class on how the smallest cells in the body work to certain hormones in the body and to how and why people get muscle cramps. The reasons most people are told growing up about muscle cramps are wrong; it's not mainly due to potassium intake it due to lake of water intake. This course also has helped me personally be healthier about my body and with exercises that I am doing now are more for why I want my body to look like. Prior to taking this class I was just doing whatever in the gym and now that I took this class, it has shown me what kind of exercise program to do to achieve the goal I want for myself.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would suggest reading the book and understanding what you are reading. Also make sure you go to the lab because some of the projects you have to do are really fun and you learn a lot about your own personal fitness level.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Dr. Parker is an incredible professor. He cares tremendously about his students and his work, and it is visible with the way he runs his class. He gives you the necessary information in his class, and highlights what is important. His exams are straight forward, and do not require an excessive amount of work.

    Course highlights:

    This course is extremely complementary to the exercise science curriculum. I thoroughly enjoyed learning about the physiologic processes behind exercise. The highlight of this course was the lab that accompanied the class. Being able to learn about VO2 max, and then calculating it in the lab absolutely helped in retention of course material.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Come to class and pay attention in his lecture. He gives you everything that is necessary to succeed. He is very approachable, so visit him in his office or email him if you have any questions. I found that incredibly useful whenever I had a topic that needed clarification. Study from his powerpoint and use a friend to talk through things like the Krebs cycle/electron transport chain/etc.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course is not only challenging and a lot of information but it is very unique. To say I enjoyed every minute of the lecture and lab would be an understatement. The professor made time for us after class by having meetings online before exams as well as at Starbucks.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course were being able to not only learn the material but understand it and apply it to real life situations. Every thing that was taught can be easily pulled from memory when it is needed.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    My best advice to give to other students is to most definitely read the book (if given) and continuously go over previous material. Flash cards worked for myself as well as asking questions. Never be afraid to ask for help, if you do not understand and if you still do not get it even at the end of the day go to the professor or see about a tutor.
