Not too easy. Not too difficult.
The most important factor that made me love this class was the professor. He did a wonderful job teaching the class and translating the information to us students. Another idea that I truly appreciated was the ideal to teach us information that we would be able to apply to ourselves later in life. To be able to learn something that will truly matter is something I would want in all classes. Not only did he apply the course to our lives but he also showed a big amount of enthusiasm when teaching and it reciprocated to us students. At least for me, I was excited to come to class and I looked forward to learn from Professor McFrederick. And the material for me wasn't even the biggest part that I enjoyed, although it was interesting and informative, I think the main factor to why this class was incredible was the professor.
Some of the main things I will take from the class were the in-class 'plays' were students from the class would participate and show how DNA replicated or how the photosynthesis and aerobic respiration worked. Being able to see a live enactment of these processes helped me visualize and understand how everything worked. It might just be because I could be a visual learner, but I think these 'play's helped a lot of people.

Advice for students:
This may sound obvious but be sure to attend class and pay attention during class. I found that quite a few people I sat near were constantly doing something else, because I guess they found that because this class was a beginning bio class that they could get away with not paying attention. If you want to receive a high grade in this class then definitely put some effort because it is a bit difficult. Also be sure to do the readings that are assigned for the class because those will definitely help with the review.
