Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I would definitely recommend this course because it expanded my knowledge on biology and I was able to apply that knowledge hands-on through weekly labs. Also, I am still in high school, but I was exposed to a lot of the coursework that I will be having when I graduate and pursue a major in Biology at UNC Charlotte. Mainly, this class is a great introductory course to biology and has prepared me for future college coursework and learning methods.
The highlights of this course were most definitely the weekly experiments that allowed me to see the online lessons come to life in the lab. From cell division observations to inspecting fingerprints to find out who the murderer was, I discovered my passion for biology! Also, I found the online videos quite interesting and thought stimulating. They pose hypothetical questions and ethical dilemmas concerning things like the Human Genome Project and cross-breeding.

Advice for students:
My advice to students considering this course is to attend ALL labs and stay up to date on homework assignments and tests. Biology is an incredibly complex study and requires quite a bit of research and rehearsal.
