This class was tough.
I would not recomend this class for people whose is learning english. The vocabulary is very tricky and is not straight foward. As well, this class is like 10 units in one class. There are 2 different subjects in just one class, which should be divided into 2 classes. It is a though class, lot of vocabulary to memorize and it demands a lot of reading.
Despite of the difficulty of this class, it is so interesting. I learned about plants and all its descriptions, such as, chemicals, original location, and scientific name. As well I learned about the living organisms.

Advice for students:
The key to succeed in this course is to form study groups with classmates. If you have difficulty understanding somethiing a study group is a good way to start because everyone is going to put something into the group. For example if someone does not understand something, another classmate may so. As well going to SI sessions helps a lot because you go over what is seen in class, you can clarify your ideas if you do not understand something.
