    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    If you want to pursue the field of science, medicine, or any type of careers in the biological field, it is crucial to take Biology 121. It gives you A deeper understanding of molecules and things that are created around us in our every day life. It makes studying easier because you already know the basic concepts of what you are reading but now you just have to study continuously to grasp the full idea of it.

    Course highlights:

    I touched upon the studies on all forms of life. Animals,plants,fungi, and bacteria. It is mostly in depth research on those previously mentioned ,

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    READ READ READ. I cannot stress that enough, just read as much as you can. If you really do not have the slightest idea on what you are trying to understand, email or schedule an appointment with the teacher. they do not bite, they only wish to help. Also find study buddies that may be in the same class as you, they might understand something that you do not, and you might understand something they don't. Work together, create bonds, and by doing that

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Dr. Jarrett is one of the best teachers I've ever had. He makes the classroom atmosphere comfortable and it is clear he is very knowledgeable about the material. His method of teaching involves a lot of note taking but if you pay attention you can easily succeed.

    Course highlights:

    One of the best parts of the course were the laboratory days where I learned so much about photosynthesis and respiration. We had gone out on campus and collected leaf sample from various trees and ran them through an experiment. It really strengthened my understanding of the topic.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    This course is required for biology students but as a science requirement, it would be my first choice. I learned many interesting things and if you are willing to put a healthy amount of work in it will be a great experience.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Dr. Carter made biology interesting and fairly easy to follow, even for someone like me, who took the class as a gen ed requirement. Also, the course has no required homework, which helped with my heavy schedule.

    Course highlights:

    The basic topics of the course were macromolecules and their basic structure, cell makeup, photosynthesis, cellular respiration, cell division, Mendelian genetics, and a bit of plant biology.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you aren't a biology major, you really only need to rent the book. The readings aren't 100% required, but skimming the topic beforehand makes lecture easier to follow. Also, Dr. Carter offers extra credit for neat copies of your lecture notes every lecture, so take advantage of that!
