    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I took BI315 through the Metropolitan College with Professor Vyshedskiy due to CAS BI315 filling up. It turned out to be for the best- the class was very small, the teacher held review sessions before each exam, and our tests were formatted in a way that emphasized important topics and allowed us to explain our understanding of topics fairly.

    Course highlights:

    The lectures were recorded and the Professor was always happy to answer questions. We also discussed interesting subject material that wasn't necessary for the course requirements, but simply boosted our interest in the subject.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Definitely take the MET college version!

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    BI 315 is an amazing course that gives you an understanding of the human body and how it works. In the summer, labs are twice a week and lecture is three times a week. Because the information is condensed into 6 weeks, the class moves at quite a fast pace. However, if you do the reading and pay attention in lecture, the class is completely manageable.

    Course highlights:

    Although lecture was informative, the highlight of the course would be labs. It's one thing to read about systole and diastole, another thing to use a decapitated frog to measure the effect of temperature and neurotransmitters on a beating heart. The cardiovascular system also becomes more real in labs; actually seeing your own EKG data and measuring your partner's blood pressure is quite cool.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    1. Taking some kinda of anatomy course before would be very helpful. Although neither Dr. Co nor Dr. Seliga ask you specific anatomy questions, the material is much easier to understand if you have even a rudimentary understanding. 2. Physiology Lab is difficult. Because you have 3 hours to finish the lab and turn in a lab report, you must start early. Try to do answer the conceptual questions before lab starts. 3. Go to office hours. The classic advice for all students, but especially for this class. Labs are hard and the questions are tricky. Dr. Seliga also gives specific tips for the lab final.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class was not only interesting because of the material, but also because Prof Widmaier was an amazing lecturer and made learning the material so much fun. It is a class perfect for aspiring doctors.

    Course highlights:

    I loved the Cardiac system and endocrine system so much. They were quite challenging but very interesting so it was not hard to study and read the book. Learning about what the specific hormones and neurotransmitters' functions was probably the most fun for me because now I know how the body responds to many medications. Widmaier covered a lot of example medications. His PSA's were a lot of fun too.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    It is not a drag to study for but you do have to put in a lot of time into deeply understanding the lectures because most of the exams are lecture-heavy. Also, his exams aren't the hardest but it is easy to make careless mistakes on them if you do not really think before picking an answer.
