    | Would recommend.

    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.

    | Would recommend.

    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.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Since the course is a 4 week course. It is very intense. It's a lot of work in a short period of time. So, if you have a summer job, you might want to think twice about this course unless your job is flexible.

    Course highlights:

    Highlights are the labs. It is interesting and fun to perform various test and see the results. The exams are long (4 hours), but fair.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    I prepared a list of what needed complete daily and marked of the items once complete.
