    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Ewing is a Fantastic Instructor. She covers all the important material that will assist you in being successful in BIOL 2402. She assists everyone with any confusions and is very clear with her requirements for the class. She has great reviews for test and is always available to her students.

    Course highlights:

    I learned about all the bones and muscles of the body and what their specific function and purpose is for in your body. I also learned about the different kinds of tissue that is in your body and what those different cells purposes were. Epithelial cells and where different types are located and their different functions. For Example: Transitional Epithelium is located in the bladder and tracts and it's purpose is to be stretchy for when the bladder is full and be able to stretch back when it is not. The different names of Neurons in the Central and Peripheral Nervous System and their functions. Oligodendrocytes form the myelin sheath in the Central Nervous System. Astrocytes are the most abundant in the CNS. They control the chemical environment surrounded neurons, and also form a permeable barrier which allows only certain materials into the brain.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    No class is going to be easy. For this course specifically don't try memorizing the material, try to learn and understand it especially if you plan on pursuing a degree in the medical field.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Edwards is very passonate about her work. She makes sure to provide many examples and explaining to those who ask. She excourages the class to participate together; no one is left out.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course consisted of a funny professor for starters. This course isnt an easy course so it helps that Professors Edwards try and make your environment more confotable and relaxed. I also learned the best ways to study when we were learning about the brain and how it retains information. Professor Edwards tought us which part of the brain recieves which signals and what we can do that best retains that information while studying.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    When taking this course, do not wait until the last minute to do your work. The work load and memorization for this course may be more than you have dealt with in the past. It take constant practice and self quizzing to get the grades you need for this course.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    She taught the class very well. Instead of just giving you the information and expecting you to memorize it, she actually taught it to you and found ways of better explaining the material. She's also a very sweet person and is willing to help you in any and every way possible.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course were when I would make a good grade after studying so hard. I learned so much this year, and the best part about it is, I know I will never forget the material. I can use everything I learned in this class in real life and even further into my other classes.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do not procrastinate. Start studying as soon as you get the information and you will make GREAT grades!!
