    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It was a good introductory class, but the topics did not interest me.

    Course highlights:

    Some of the major points of the course were phylogentic trees, evolution and mutation, and morphology

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take your time on the quizzes and don't be afraid to ask questions

    | Would recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    It is a good stepping stone into the upper level Biology courses at Carroll.

    Course highlights:

    I learned some things that are useful in the BIO125 class that comes after BIO120.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Go to the SI sessions for this cause, make study guides every week with the material that you learned, ask questions in class, go to office hours.

    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course is a bit above the introductory level of biology for many students. If you took a AP bio course you will be just fine, however if you haven't be prepared for lots of extra work. If you attend SI, you will learn tons more than just the class teaches you and will be prepared for exams. Todd is a great guy, but his exams tend to be a bit off from his lectures. This just means a little more out of class work.

    Course highlights:

    I definitely gained lots of knowledge of phylogenies!

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Go to Si. Treat it like going to a class and never miss. Always read the book before going to lecture.
