    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    This was a good introductory biology course that broadly covers the aspects of biology and prepares you for the next tougher courses.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course are that the teacher teaches from powerpoints that are found online, class attendance is not mandatory but recommended, 4 tests, lowest grade dropped.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make study guide from powerpoint notes and study them.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    If you are a Bio major or pre-health, chances are this course is required. I am telling you that you want Cooper if you can. She moves quickly through the material but it is easy to find help if you don't understand. Just ask a question if you have one and she will be quick to explain. Make sure you do well in your Bio Lab because it is 25% of your overall BYS 119 grade and your recitation is 10%. Make sure you attend class. you get clicker points for doing so.Also, she tends to drop the lowest test grade then add all of your clicker points as bonus to your next lowest. So it will benefit you to show up.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot through this course. I had taken bio in high school and remebered doing Punnet Squares and Mono and Dihybrid crosses and such but I never really understood Phenotypes and genotypes. After this class I definitely did! I also learned a whole lot more than that! a LOT more. it is very beneficial in understanding the basic principles of biology in order to prepare you for organismal Biology. BYS 120.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    My classes were 2 hours twice a week. Thats four hours. Then I did about 2 hours of studying for it a week. If that, I suggest you do more. I pulled B because I did good in the lab which is 25% but if I had actually studied for the first two tests and shown up to ALL of the classes to get all of the points then I could have easily gotten an A. Oh! and ASK QUESTIONS

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it is taught by a great professor who makes the difficult class of biology a lot easier by steadily guiding one through it. The professor also provides great study methods to help the students be successful in and out of class.

    Course highlights:

    In this course, one will learn about the basic principles of life such as characteristics of life, cell structure, cell function, and cell reproduction. As a part of the lab taken with this course, the student will get hands on experience of how the basic principles of life function.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take the time to study immediately after class by reviewing notes and making sure you understand your notes, make friends with people and form study groups because there is a fair amount of material to cover, and lastly make sure to discuss any struggles you may have with understanding any material with the professor.
