    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course for anyone thinking about going into environmental science or something in the field of biology (medicine included). Very helpful information given about the development of animals (and plants). Some of it is interesting, some of it is boring. Volunteer to practice with the pig fetus the first week it's available, it gets stinky after a few weeks of working with it.

    Course highlights:

    I learned the origins of our different organ systems, the different types of cells in a plant, circulatory systems, respiratory systems, waste systems. Basically basic biological functions on a more macro scale than bio 205.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Try your hardest to pay attention during lecture. It will be boring but suffer through it. Take notes with pen and paper so that you don't have the option of getting distracted by the internet (like I did)

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Anu makes this course worth taking. She is easily one of the most passionate biology professors at Western Washington University. Anu explains the material with clarity and care, and she knows how to engage her students. You will always know what you will need to know for the future.

    Course highlights:

    The first half of the class focuses on anatomy and physiology of plants. I learned about every aspect of plant survival, from how they obtain nutrients to how they respond to their environments. Did you know that plants will physically respond to humidity, temperature, and sunlight? Honestly, plants seemed boring before this class. The second half briefs animal anatomy and physiology. It is a crash course on the 11 animal body systems. Don't be fooled. Although the course zips through the material, Anu requires deep understanding.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Taking notes and surveying the material before it is covered in class is a must. If you cannot breeze through the textbook, I recommend that you write down notes from her slides and glance through the pictures and captions from the book. Having some sort of idea about what will be covered before attending is crucial to learning as much as possible in the given class time.
