    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course from this professor to anyone interested in going into the medical field or even just needing to fulfill a natural science requirement, Barnby is very knowledgeable and experienced in this subject area. The class size is huge but he utilizes his tech resources very well to make the material memorable.

    Course highlights:

    I had taken a previous biology course so I had some knowledge coming into this course with Barnby but I definitely felt I learned even more in his class, especially when the anatomy portion came to pass. I was able to learn and remember most of all about how our bodies function in certain environments and when we consume things how certain organs break down and use the material for energy.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    This is course is very extensive and is definitely not one of those courses where you can just do all the classwork, lab work, and tests and pass with an A. I invested a lot of hours into this course and I studied really hard, never missed an assignment, performed a little bit a above average on the tests and still only got a "B". I still very much enjoyed it and it helped me work on my time management and utilize other learning methods but this is one of those classes that you will need to invest a lot time into.

    Course Overview:

    Honestly, he is the worst professor I have ever had.

    Course highlights:

    If you don't have any understanding of trig or pre calc going into this class,

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    then you're screwed. His teaching is terrible at best.
