    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would only take this course if you need it for your major.-it is very difficult and takes a lot of time to put into it. Although the material is very interesting, do not plan on this being an easy GPA booster class. The homework questions are very similar to the test questions, so try your best on those and you should do fine in the course.

    Course highlights:

    You learn about the physiology of certain diseases, like cystic fibrosis and congestive heart failure.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Stay on top of the homework and lectures!

    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.
