    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I loved this class because it challenged you to think critically about the material, understand consequences of cellular actions, and realize that we just don't know everything about cellular biology just yet.

    Course highlights:

    I think the best part of this course was that the professor would always incorporate current articles that were relevant to what we were learning, so we could see that what we were studying actually mattered. I also loved the cancer unit, because it finally allowed me to see why cancer is so difficult to cure.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    You definitely need to take great notes and class, even record the lecture if you want. Plan at least an hour for the HW questions due before each class, because they can be tough, but you can get them if you try very hard. For the tests, you should make sure you know everything on the professor's powerpoints, even structures.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Wormington is a really great professor who knows what he is talking about. He gives out 5 homework questions online and there are 3 a week. The homework questions are great practice for the actual test exams. I found the power points he uses to be very helpful since he would go into detail of what each slide entails. I recommend going to class since he breaks down the details and in general it is an interesting class if you love Biology.

    Course highlights:

    I absolutely enjoyed this class. This class made me realize why I decided to pursue a career in the medical field. I found it interesting learning about all the different sort of receptors and how it can help or hurt our body. I liked learning how it linked to different diseases. It helped connect the dots of all the basic stuff I have learned in Introductory Biology.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would recommend to do all of the homework questions since they help your grade at the end. I didn’t find the book to be that helpful but understand the slides and you should do great. Also, don’t skip his lectures.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Wormington is a highly knowledgeable instructor, with lectures really focused on providing information that will be integral to your understanding of cells as well as the processes of the human body. Wormington cares about his students understanding, is not afraid to admit making mistakes, which is important with tenured professors. He has over thirty years of experience, so he is perfect for the subject. As for the material itself, it is extremely interesting, not only to biology majors, but to all who are interested in biology and smaller processes. There is also an entire unit on cancer, which is highly relatable for most people and both astounding in the ways that we combat the disease and how far we've come but still need to go. It is an excellent course, would highly recommend.

    Course highlights:

    Overall, I learned a lot about how the cells of the body communicate and manage to maintain a homeostasis between all the different processes going on within us. The complications that exist are almost always derived from these lower level processes; things that seem very insignificant but are actually intricately incorporated into almost everything we do. Again, I especially enjoyed the unit on cancer and seeing how the disease evolves and how we seek to evolve with it in order to treat it before it takes a strong foothold.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would definitely suggest that you go to EVERY, SINGLE, LECTURE. There is no excuse to miss a Wormington lecture, especially since they are jam packed with information and Mike prefers to go on his own accord, rather than base it from the textbook. I rarely used the textbook, but I wrote down almost everything he said so I could read through my notes almost verbatim as I reviewed his slides. Dedicate at least 3 days to study for the exams, most of which ask complicated, but completely fair questions. There are 50 multiple choice questions, and some come from the homework directly, so definitely do the homework to the fullest extent and make sure to understand why the answers are what they are.
