    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because the teacher is very nice and helpful. This does not mean that the course is easy in any way. Biology was one of the hardest classes i have ever taken.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how hard you need to study and how to not waste time on unimportant details. I learned a lot about the internal workings of the human body.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Study more than you ever have because this course will make you see where you can improve.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Though it was a hard and rigorous course, I really enjoyed the class. It was full of information and if you're looking to be in the science field, you HAVE to take it to graduate anyways. This course covers A LOT of material, so be ready to study hard.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course was second semester when Dr. Ben Thornton was teaching. Though he can be very intimidating, he is very nice and a GREAT teacher. I learned a lot from him and continue to take his classes. My favorite parts were labs and the chapters on nature and animals.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    In order to do well in this class, you need to study, and study hard. It covers a vast amount of different information and in order to do well on tests, you need to spend a couple hours each day for at least a week getting acquainted with the information. Also, the final is cumulative for both semesters, but don't sweat it. I studied for over a month, took the test, thought I had failed because it was so hard, but I ended up getting a B+. Not too shabby. I honestly think I could've not studied for it and done just as well.
