    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Dr. Bailey is a great guy, and funny at that, however this course is fast moving. If you work hard at it though, this class will be fine.

    Course highlights:

    This was your basic gen bio class. You mostly talked about things on the cellular level.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Bailey is definitely the best bet for this course, and just be sure your ready to have homework every night.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I really liked Dr. Bailey! He was funny and sarcastic, and had a very good grasp on the subjects at hand. He has a good background in neuroscience and biology and he was a very big help with my questions about the MCAT. The class itself was a lecture, but he was able to make the hour fly by. The class focused on the first half of the biology book, which isn't my favorite as it focuses primarily on the cell, cell respiration, and photosynthesis, but the class was interesting. Also, labs were cool, though they involved a lot of sitting and waiting for the results to happen.

    Course highlights:

    The labs were a big highlight. Halfway through the semester, we got new micropipettes, and that was big news. We watched a video on how to properly work them and we also became acquainted with the drawer full of dead/broken micropipettes. So, I definitely learned how to work micropipettes as well as the basic overview of the cell and the important processes of cellular respiration and photosynthesis.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Dr. Bailey talks kind of fast, so definitely read the material before class so notes are easier to take. By reading before, it is easy to know what is needed and what isn't and aides in abbreviations in writing, because there is a lot of material to cover.
