    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Dr Sal is an amazing teacher! It's a challenging course, but you will learn a million things about bacteria.

    The "Bug Parade" was one of my favorite parts. We learned about a bunch of different bacteria and what they can cause.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Study in advance. Rewrite your notes. However you study best, do it in advance.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because not only is it a requirement for biology majors, but it also gives a thorough knowledge base to work off of in future classes.

    Course highlights:

    Lafantasie is a very kind and understanding teacher.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't get behind on studying and don't avoid the Lessonpaths. She will give pop quizzes if she feels people aren't keeping up.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend this course because it is a more indept course from what you take in high school. You get to apply what you're learning and I think that is the best way to really learn the material.

    Course highlights:

    Being able to apply what I was using. One of my favorite lessons were the different types of plants such as gynosperms.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the chapters and participate in class.
