    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class is excellent for any student who does not want to be stuck in a basic biology class because it covers just enough of the information students have gained from high school and intro biology courses and still provides the opportunity to be challenged and gain new knowledge. I myself prefer chemistry over biology if given the choice but this course integrates basic chemistry so it is a dynamic course for students who want to skip the basics and jump into fast forwarding to collecting credits that count towards their degrees. Plus Dr. Sweet makes learning easy in this course.

    Course highlights:

    In basic biology or basic chemistry classes it is difficult to understand how either is applicable to real world understanding of how life functions as a whole. This class takes all the components a student has learned and applies them to real time functions of life. Basic courses teach you what is inside your box of parts, teaches you their names and functions, but this course is the instruction manual that teaches you how to put the parts in the box together and once you are done constructing you learn how the final product functions as a whole. This course is intermediate for learning how biology and chemistry work together to give the world moving parts.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    You have to do the assigned readings and the Mastering Biology interactive assignments to be successful on the exams. You also need to keep up with the pace in order to participate in class and gain valuable points by correctly answering iClicker questions. Also, labs are vital and flash cards are recommended for the memorization of terms and key concepts.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This class although tough for a 100 level course, proved to help in more ways than one. Given a choice of Biology classes to take for a nursing pre-requisite, my advisor recommended this one and said it would give me an advantage for my physiology class that is required to take next year, but this class paired nicely with my chemistry 102 class. If you are taking other biology classes, or chemistry 102 at WSU, I highly recommend this course!

    Course highlights:

    During this class, we learned some basic biology such as punnet squares, and the layout of a cell and the functions within the cell. We also went in depth on DNA structures and how it is copied, and how cells divide through mitosis and meiosis, and finally we covered in depth lectures on metabolisms, and cellular respiration. In lab we isolated a phage from the soil collected on campus. My favorite part of the class was the phage lab, because it was hands on experience in a biology lab, and I got to isolate and dissect the DNA from a virus found in the soil.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    My advice for this class is to take notes on the powerpoints posted the day before, and when given the daily quiz, to write down the questions and answers. While in class focus on what is repeated and write down/answer the clicker questions in class. After class highlight the overlapping information, and rewrite your notes or make flashcards for another chance of exposure to the material. When the pre-exam quiz is given, the first time around don't use your notes, then the second time use the notes to correctly answer any other questions that you got wrong, and again highlight the overlapping material. If after the first exam, or if the material is not making sense GO to office hours!
