    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    For BIOL 198 Principles of Biology, I would say this class is very hard for an introduction course. If you take this course be sure to set a side a lot of time for this class. Overall I am on the fence with recommending the course to someone. If you know that you can handle out out class learning on your own and putting the time into the course, you'll do fine. If you do not do well with learning on your own and keeping up with the course, this class will be difficult for you. So to recommend this class just depends on how the person does in a setting for this class.

    Course highlights:

    Overall, I thought this class was pretty interesting. I learned more about plants and how our ecosystems worked as a whole. You also learn about animals and how the whole systems work for us.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Advice for this class would be get help if you feel like you would struggle in a class environment like this. Also, stay on top of the reading and learn how all things tie together within that chapter. That will help you for when test come. When test week comes around, take the whole weekend to study. You'll have no time for friends and need to spend every moment studying for the exams, since the exams are out of 30 points.

    | Would recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It's a fun and nontraditional class setting. Its a studio lab instead of separate lecture and lab. You have to do some pre class reading, and during class you learn by reading online web material while also participating in lab to see how it works/applied.

    Course highlights:

    The studio lab setting, because you learn a lot instead of just reading about it, you actually perform small experiments to see what happens.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Pre class reading is important. The quizzes are study material for tests, and go to office hours/study groups
