Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I enjoyed learning about the details of cellular biology through application problems and practicing laboratory techniques that help inform detailed biological concepts.
The highlights of this course were using large application problems in which a major concept such as apoptosis, was the focus. This application problem used a story to help us conceptualize the biological process.

Advice for students:
I would advise other students to rewrite their notes to help them review the concepts that the course focuses on, as well as working with another person or group of people to smooth out any misconceptions that one might have. Be patient, this course is not easy but the concepts are not impossible to comprehend, it takes work and is a rewarding course to complete.
