    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This class is intriguing and funny without making the atmosphere too unprofessional. Professor Ramos grades within a decent time bracket, and while the book is required, you can check it out at the library. The class is not easy. If you don't study, you won't excel. The average grade that people earn is a B or a C, but if you are an A student, a good grade is feasible.

    Course highlights:

    We covered australopithecines (robust and gracile), a bit of human anatomy, and discussed our origins. This course is preliminary, and sets a foundation for more difficult anthro courses. I found it interesting how bonobos and gorillas make great dads, but the male chimps are much less family oriented! The professor joked a lot about high-school prom. I didn't grant him a 5th star because he does not give extra credit in the short summer/winter semesters. Overall, he's still fantastic. Highly recommend.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make a study group! I teamed up with two people from the class who both received similar grades. We all helped each other. Use a dry-erase whiteboard. There's a lot of information to memorize and a white-board will cut down on the amount of paper you waste. Calculate your grade from the very first quiz you receive. Always ask if you don't understand something because the class is fast-paced.
