    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    While Dr. Buck's microbiology class was extremely challenging, it was also so much fun and educational. I found the subject matter very interesting.

    Course highlights:

    You'll learn how to really take notes. When I took the class, Dr. Buck did not post power points online. If you didn't pay attention, you didn't do well in the class. Gosh I learned all sorts of things from that class--academic and basic college student skills.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    If you want a BS in Biomedical Science, CLS, etc., you have to take this class. Don't kill yourself over it--getting a C in this class is totally fine. If you get an A, I hope you're going to med school! Oh, and take Genetics the semester before. It'll be very helpful to have that background.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    If you are willing to study to the best of your ability and participate in class, then this class will not disappoint. There is a lot to be learned from this class that can be used in further Biology studies, but it requires dedication and is not for the faint of heart.

    Course highlights:

    This course was the reason I chose a major in Cellular and Molecular Biology. The teacher was extremely engaging, and while he seems intimidating he truly has the best interest of his students at heart. The metabolism of bacteria is a central theme in this course, but it applies to human systems as well.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    The book is necessary, though you don't need the most current edition. Find a study group or attend SI sessions for clarification. Please do not miss class. You only hurt yourself that way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Dr. Turner is a wonderful professor and is incredibly passionate about the subject. The overall concept of microbiology is a big challenge for students, but he does a good job covering important concepts.

    Course highlights:

    Dr. Turner is a plus! He is a dorky little dude with an amazing lab. Definitely reach out to him if you find the course interesting, because working in that lab is even a dream for the graduate students.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you take it with Dr. Turner, definitely look at the questions in the back of the book and make sure you know the overall concepts of the questions. At least 50% of exam content consists of those questions, or questions incredibly similar to it.
