    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    The professor does not provide clear expectations for students, and tends to create a negative classroom environment. She tends to talk down to students, creating the idea that we should not ask questions in class. There is a lot of material, but definitely do able if you are willing to put in the time!

    Course highlights:

    Cell division; DNA replication; energetics; plant hormones; plant development; animal development; respiratory systems; metabolism

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    STUDY STUDY STUDY; do notes/read before class; don't get behind

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course is a core course, it is important to have under your belt. I learn a lot of different things but they all were so beneficial to me in my upper division courses. It is a hard course, takes time and effort to understanding. It is important to keep up with the material throughout the semester so one does not fall behind!

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot about DNA or just the central dogma. We had to learned the molecular mechanism and chemistry behind DNA and how it all works.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take it! if is a core course and make sure you do the research on the professor before signing in the class. It does matter who teaches it, but it also matters how much time you put into studying.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This is one of the very few weed-out classes at the PLU. I personally had a terrible experience in this class with professor Laurie-Berry. She geared the course against the students and seemed to have somewhere down the road forgotten that her job is to ensure the learning and progress of students.

    Course highlights:

    We learned about basic biology, things learned in high school and then things that are also distinct to the college education. ATP, how cells work, basic organisms, and you go really in depth into how the cells of plants work.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Check the chapter guides, assignments, slide shows, and the electronic subscription site needed every day. Assignments are never in one place, they are all scattered throughout these multiple pages, sites, and locations. It is easy to miss assignments due to this, try not to miss 10 assignments in a row though.
