    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Herr is a great teacher who truly cares about student success and fostering a love of biology within his students. He makes learning material easier by telling stories and jokes that relate to the topics. He also offers incentives like extra credit for perfect attendance and at least half credit on in class questions.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a new appreciation for microbiology and all the complex processes that occur on a molecular level. It was so interesting to learn about advancements that have been made in the field and more that are being made currently.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Professor Herr posts 80% of his test questions ahead of time and if you treat them like a study guide (fill out the answers and make sure you know the material) then you should do very well on his tests. There are only 3 throughout the quarter, so this is crtitical!

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Prof. O'Quinn was extremely helpful and very understanding. If you could catch her during her office hours, she gladly took the time to further explain concepts that you didn't understand.

    Course highlights:

    The labs were really fun and super informative! While almost none of the topics were new if you took Biology or A.P. Biology in high school, the class does delve a little further into each topic, so not all of it is review. Also, most people in the class need it for their major, so making friends in the class will help you further along in the future.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Studying every day is very important. Also, writing note cards for the vocabulary words helps so much on tests and quizzes. Try not to miss any lab days; they give so much insight into the topics in class and it actually can save your grade if you don't finish the lab assignments.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course to those willing to read and dive into biology. It takes a lot of reading and studying, but the amount of knowledge you'll have coming out of this class will be worth it! This course covers a lot, approximately 15 chapters of the biology book we were given, but as long as time and effort is put in you will come out of this course feeling confident in the basics of biology.

    Course highlights:

    Highlights were probably all the little details we got into on subjects that past biology courses just covered the surface on. These details include cell parts, amino acid functions, protein functions, etc.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Definitely read the optional reading and show up to class to take notes! These are the two most important parts of succeeding in biology. Soak up all the information you are given to the best of your ability and go in during office hours if you're confused.
