    | Would recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Dr. Rahman is a very experienced professor who is there to really help you understand the material and push you to get an A in her course. She's very thorough, and on the first day of class, she offers herself to write recommendation letters for anyone who does well and deserves it. That made me think of the future and what I can gain from the class long-term. She's a great mentor and outs effort in making the class engaging and fun.

    Course highlights:

    I really enjoyed learning about different bacteria and being able to debunk many science myths that exist that even I am guilty of believing. For example, she put a lot emphasis on this one bacteria, Helicobacter pylori which is the bacteria that causes ulcers! My whole life I thought stomach ulcers were caused by our own stomach acid! Turns out a scientist investigating the cause of them happened to ingest the bacteria to prove his theory that bacteria cause ulcers! He was successful and proved his theory by taking antibiotics to kill the bacteria and healed completely after treatment.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Study the slides very closely and find ways to memorize different characteristics of different bacteria. Attend class and ask question!

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because Dr. George teaches it in a way that is most relevant to current, real-world situations. It enables you to better learn and apply the information. Overall, the course is interesting, exciting and a treat to attend.

    Course highlights:

    At the end of the semester, you get to a presentation on a disease of your choice, which was the true highlight of the course for me. The requirements for the presentation included elements behind microbiology that we learned throughout the course.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Definitely attend every class. It makes learning the material much easier and thus, ensures a better grade in the course. Also, Professor George appreciates those students she can see are applying themselves by asking questions, doing the work and showing effort in their work.
