    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Dr. Eckles is the most interesting lecturer I have had. She makes the class challenging but gives you all the resources you need to succeed and is extremely knowledgable and helpful.

    Course highlights:

    This course is an essential lower division biology class that will set you up for the rest of your major requirements. Although taxonomy seems irrelevant it is the basis of knowledge of all organisms and their relations to each other.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you are able to memorize all your notes as well as apply the knowledge you have studied. Eckles exams are not traditional but focus on what you know and you will do well.

    | Would recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because even though it is challenging and a dry subject, this professor not only makes the course interesting, but also encourages you to think about the bigger picture.

    Course highlights:

    I was able to better understand the mechanisms of evolution as is evident in modern-day organisms as well as gain knowledge on each type of organism we have.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Use every resource including reading the textbook, youtube videos, and office hours. If you are a visual learning that requires bigger picture connections, I suggest drawing and rewriting diagrams and cycles.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I have to take this course for my major so it was a necessity. I would recommend this if you are interested in taking the pre medical track or Biology in general. This course covers most areas involving phylogenetic trees and helps you follow the line of evolution. This class should be accompanied by a lab to get the full hands on experience.

    Course highlights:

    I found learning about human evolution and how mammals are all intricately related to be the most interesting. I learned how highly evolved animals such as humans can be traced back thousands of years to microorganisms. After taking this class I can see the world around me differently. I enjoy having the knowledge to appreciate how far we have come from our ancestors and how similar animals are to each other.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would advise to memorize all the kingdom, phylum and orders using pictures and flash cards, and also to read the book. Reading the book really helps the information come full circle.
