    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Before I was a psychology major, I was a science major and specifically biology. I took Mark Condon for his Bio 105 and 106 course because I heard so many good things about him. Well I was never the strongest science student, but I learned so much in his class it's actually mind blowing. He is such a wonderful teacher and really cares about whether his students are actually understanding and learning the material. He is a hard grader, but it's only for the students benefit.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot. It's hard to say what I specifically learned so I am just going to use Biology in general. Just everything this teacher taught us made complete sense to me. It was as if everything from high school biology now became a clear epiphany because he taught so well and took him time to really explain the material.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    In this class he only gives tests. The average of all your grades minus 2 tests, because he drops the two lowest grades, is what your grade is. I suggest studying constantly and even visiting him during office hours to study and learn more. For myself I should've gotten a tutor as well, but the best I could do now is advise others to get a tutor. He is a very tough grader due to his passion for the topic and desire to really make the students learn, but try to study to avoid those mistakes on the tests.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend this course to premed students because it will teach not only Biology but Chemistry as well. It is a difficult course that requires a lot of independent reading.

    Course highlights:

    Lab! Lab is the experimental part of this class. In lecture you learn about basic chemistry and how it relates to Biology. Students also learn how Biology is applied to life. The lecture part is there to teach students Biology, but the lab part is there to PROVE Biology. Ita almost as if you're making a claim that something is true (lecture), and then you're providing facts to back up those claims by doing experiments.(lab)

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    My advice for any student of ANY course would be to read. Reading and taking notes in the class room is always great. However, independent reading outside of class is extremely important. Independent reading will prepare you for tomorrow. Make sure that you comprehend what you're reading. You should also be able to explain what you're reading in your own words for better understanding and retaining of information. Never stop reading.
