This class was tough.
This course is perfect for students of Biology major who are curious about cellular, molecular, and evolution. The professor is nice because he based some of the test materials from a Pearson program called Mastering Biology. He also has 4 days of office hours reserved for his students every week.
From this course, I learned that all organisms are composed of cells. Some organisms are unicellular while others are multicellular. Cells need a source of energy to survive in the form of light, inorganic or organic materials from environment, or consuming other organisms. In studying a variety of organisms, we can see a pattern that organisms are diverse and yet have a spectrum of similarity. This similarity is found in their DNA and their different DNAs could represent a history of descent with modification. As the earliest unicellular organisms evolved, they undergo DNA mutation through natural selection.

Advice for students:
Only take 10-12 units of classes in total. This course is important because it serves as the foundation to understand life. Please read your textbooks, do assignments, come to lab prepared, and take advantage of Mastering Biology practice test and quiz questions to ensure your success and high quality learning.
