Pretty easy, overall.
Janine really makes things easy to understand. Her lectures are extremely thorough and you can tell she really knows what she's talking about. She gives out study guides with absolutely everything that will be on the test and will gladly go over anything you didn't understand. With a little bit of effort, this class is not only a breeze but actually fun.
A majority of the semester was spent learning about different organisms and their classifications. She made sure to give a lot of relevant resources of what's going on in the marine world today which really helped connect the class to our daily lives.
