    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It is a good litmus course for those who are interested in EEB (Ecology and Evolutionary Biology) programs. Also, it is a mandatory prerequisite for all life sciences programs. However, if you certainly are not in life sciences or are not interested in life science programs, it is not worth taking as a breadth requirement. BIO130 in winter is a better choice, if you are looking to meet BR4

    Course highlights:

    From this course, I learnt important study skills required in biology courses. The main thing is memorization. For the first half of the course, it is a little easier contentwise as most of the things can be rote learnt. It involves concepts from evolutionary biology. However, for the second half of the course, it is quite interesting as a lot of the material is based on conceptual understanding. It combines with geography and includes major aspects of ecology.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Study each and every part of the material (syllabus) head to toe. They ask questions from every corner of the material. Spend some time making mind maps or single page key points for each chapter/lecture and use them as sources of revision before a term test or the final exam. Do NOT start studying less than a week before the exam. For Barret's lectures, things can be mugged up. You need to learn about the scientists and researchers he discusses in lectures, who have contributed to the understanding of evolution. You need to also learn the examples of research he discusses during the lectures as his questions revolve around that as well as the people. Also, he puts some direct questions as well as twisted ones. Unlike Thomson's lecture materials, you need to understand the concepts as his questions will revolve around applying those concepts into unfamiliar or unlearnt situations. Thomson does put a lot of twisted questions in tests and exams as well.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course is a great introduction to the themes of Biology, both the small scale (cells, and molecules) and large scale (evolution and ecology).

    Course highlights:

    I acquired a new viewpoint for looking at biology and how evolutionary process shape the biology that is observed around us whither it is human dietary behaviour or flower colour.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you go over every detail of lecture, he often puts very specific points and examples on exams.
