This class was tough.
This course is extremely informative. It is essentially the basis necessary for all bio majors - you gotta take it. The professor is difficult, so don't take this if you are not going to put in the work (and I mean hours of work). However, I absolutely love the material and the professor is an excellent instructor. The subject matter itself is difficult but she makes it interesting and tries to relate concepts to daily life.
Although I have not completed this course just yet, I have already learned so much. I have taken an intro to general bio before but we did not touch on things the way we have in this course already. I have learned lots of information regarding proteins and what role they play in our cells and our bodies overall. I have also learned about why DNA is so important for life. We also learn about differences and similarities in types of organisms (there are 3 different categories of living organisms on Earth).

Advice for students:
In order to succeed in this course, you will want to be reviewing every day. DO NOT leave all your material for the last minute - the exam questions are worded in a way that you must *know* the material, not just have things memorized. Also, learn to connect concepts together. When I study for this course, I use lecture notes, the book and the workbook. I go over the review questions that the professor provides using all three sources.
