    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    The class itself is interesting, but there are just so many details that have to be memorized and the professor does not do a good job at explaining them. I probably wouldn't recommend this class mainly because you have to teach a lot of the material to yourself.

    Course highlights:

    The lab portion of the class was definitely the most interesting. I learned a lot of lab techniques and tests for bacteria that will be useful for the rest of my science major.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you have enough time to put in the effort of learning the material on your own time. Also, online quizlets are the best way to study for sure!

    | Would recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I look forward to lab every week! The subject alone, how microorganisms survive and infect us, is so interesting. Being able to see these bacteria under a microscope in lab is just icing on the cake.

    Course highlights:

    In this course, we learned about the structures of microbes and their differentiating methods of reproduction, genetic mutations, metabolic processes, etc. In lab, we learned many different techniques for culturing and identifying bacteria. My personal favorite section we covered was about viruses. It is incredible how something that technically isn't alive can infect us.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Definitely read the book and study consistently throughout the semester. Cramming for tests won't get you the grade you want.
