    | Would recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because of the in-depth teachings of basic biology concepts.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot about phylogeny, which was very interesting as I was able to see how the whole world of organisms fit together.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Repetition of material over time is the best way to learn for this class.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    It was an interesting class for sure however they give you a lot of information all at one time and the labs rather than assisting you in putting what you've learned into action just give you more information.

    Course highlights:

    You gain a relatively thorough knowledge of living organisms from single celled organisms to plants to large animals.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    STUDY!!! the Lab practicals in particular we extremely tough and while the dissections were interesting you have to know a lot of information, so STUDY!!!

    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    At the time, I was studying Wildlife Biology, so LIFE103 was a required course. I think it is for most science majors, so I don't have strong feelings about whether or not another student should take it. It is a pretty standard intro-level biology course, but very in-depth and including a long lab that meets once a week.

    Course highlights:

    I definitely learned a lot more about animal and plant biology than I knew before, and the amazing thing is almost 2 years later, I still remember some of it. The dissections stood out most to me, and definitely helped most when it came time to take the lab practicals.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    As it is a very rigorous course and you don't have many opportunities for points outside of exams, I highly recommend being able to devote a lot of time studying. Make flashcards! Review the lab material! Go to office hours! And it would absolutely be helpful to meet with other students in the class for study sessions. It's just wild how much more information you can retain when you are learning with and teaching other people the things you know. Even though lectures can be long and boring, you absolutely must go to class or you will miss out on a lot of crucial information. And to save yourself some stress, review and highlight your notes a couple times a week. If you put the time in, it won't be bad. I didn't put in enough time and it was very difficult for me.
