    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The class is very engaging in the world of biology. Everything that is needed to be known in that class is brought up in a straight forward manner. Professor Kittelson does a very good job of explaining concepts during class and office hours for those who need help. The class is overall interesting for anyone who loves general biology.

    Course highlights:

    Some of the highlights is a group presentation to the Professor alone. It was an oral examination about photosynthesis and the key factors that are used. Not only was it on how photosynthesis was done, but the energy levels and the amount of sunlight needed to start the photosynthesis process.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Always reading the textbook is a good idea for anyone taking a biology course. The material that is given during class is important for the exams. If anyone has questions during class, do not be afraid to ask because then you will get lost with the concepts of biology.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course taught me a LOT, which I mainly contribute to Jon's dedication and passion for biology. It wasn't the easiest course, but as long as you read you'll be successful!

    Course highlights:

    I enjoyed doing Jon's case studies, which provide a relevant insight into the current happenings and applications for biology in our world. I learned a lot about topics varying from how Zika virus infects the body, to the effects of evolution.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the provided textbook reading when Jon assigns it so you actually feel like you understand what you're learning when he lectures about the material.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would highly recommend taking Biology 101. It's interesting even to my friends that aren't going to be science majors. The course involves learning how the cells work in bodies and plants and slowly builds as you go, but I also recommend reading the textbook. It tells a lot of information that might not be taught during lecture.

    Course highlights:

    I've learned about myself in the sense that taking such a rigorous course helped me figure out how to study. It also prepared for other harder courses. Course wise, I learned about cells, which fascinate me dearly because such little microscopic molecules make up our bodies and how they work.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the textbook, take notes on the textbook and homework, go to the lectures and take notes there, and re-read your notes (yes, all of them) every/every other night for a good test score and memory recall.
