    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This corse may catch your eye for the intriguing tittle, and interesting corse description, as it did for me. I am grateful to report that this class goes far beyond that. There is a fair amount of material to cover, so attending lecture is essential. The corse is excited as it dives into evolution, earth science, history, and more. I gained a vast array of knowledge which I can apply to other courses and life. The professor and TA's are inspirational, accommodating, and make learning fun. The labs are great, as students get to work with fossils and other materials (some which can only be found at UCSB). Additionaly, the labs allowed us to apply our knowledge from class to be able to better understand the material, work with TA's to receive feedback and guidance, and work with other students in class. The class meets twice a week for lecture, and once a week for labs. There are two test, a midterm and final, and lab reports. Professor Luna takes attendance in both lecture and lab. You are allowed to miss two classes. The book is good if you need further explanation, but most of the material is covered in slide show lectures. Background knowledge is not needed, but would be helpful. I highly recommend this corse for any major.

    Course highlights:

    Learning about earth's history and different species evolution history has expanded my perspective on how life functions. How the past can give us insight on the present and future. How science is the foundation, and "scientific knowledge is constantly improving. Science = intellectual opens...We change out minds in light of new evidence."

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Attend lecture, review slides, attend review session, and work with the TAs. I recommend to print out the lecture slides before class, and write additional notes on the slides. Learn the hierarchy charts he provides ASAP, everything will make more sense if you learn this right away. Labs are a great time to meet other students to form study sessions out side of class.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The professor always remains engaged in his lectures and gives many opportunities to raise your grade throughout the quarter.

    Course highlights:

    The most memorable thing I learned from the course that I can't seem to forget is that chickens are dinosaurs.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be sure to attend every lecture and do the homework assignments on time. Try your best on the labs to get the highest score you can! Flashcards were the biggest help in remembering vocabulary and dates, as there are so many you need to learn.
