    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    There is definitely a lot of information to learn. I would recommend this course during a quarter where your course load isn't already filled with science courses. First midterm covers a few lectures, while the second one makes a huge jump in the amount of knowledge you're expected to have/contain. Don't underestimate the class.

    Course highlights:

    I think one highlight is learning how to figure out proportions of genetic inheritance without punnett squares

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Definitely put a lot of time into studying. A whole week or more. Do 10+ hours of review for the week before a midterm. DEFINITELY!!! Look at the problems of the back of the book chapters, he doesn't really do anything with the book but he likes sneaking a problem or two from it onto the midterm.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The subject is very interesting, but to study for the tests you have to study using his other tests. In other words you have to study how to take a test rather than the subject

    Course highlights:

    Learned a lot about DNA replication and the processes that it includes as well as transcriptions and translations and how the final protein is made.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Use the podcasts and rewrite your notes.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    As a Human Development major planning on going into nursing, this class was not only helpful in the academic sense, but I was actually able to really enjoy the material as it pertained to me personally. Even though it wasn't exactly a major requirement (I could have picked a different class to satisfy the topic requirement), it was a fun class to take with Professor Crowder, who made the class very manageable and interesting. The course material was always very relevant, as it was about gene expression and how hereditary traits worked with our DNA.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of the course were the sections about genetic mutation and how that led to the variations in population that made differences between individuals and different geographic populations the way they are. The fact that seemingly harmful mutations could lead to the survival of an entire population and how that led to certain groups being the way they are today was a very engaging topic to learn about.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Definitely keep up with the work and study as you go so that you aren't cramming for the final. It's always better to be reviewing at leisure rather than trying to learn new info for the test. Office hours are extremely helpful and don't be afraid to ask for help, even if it's to completely review an entire concept from the very beginning--TA's and your professor are there to help you, so they won't mind at all.
