    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The professor taught in a way that you understood each step in biology and even though it was a condensed course it was easy but a lot of work!

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot about how the body uses the things we eat to give us energy.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    The textbook is not greatly needed; but if she offers her study lab then go!

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Judy is a fun passionate teacher who is able to take a less than desirable topic and make it fun. From the first day of class until the last you could tell that she is very passionate not only about the subject she is teaching but helping her students to understand what she is teaching. She has a good sense of humor and a kind heart. This teacher is not an easy A though. She does expect you to do the work and study for her exams. I found if I could record and listen to lecture a few times it would help. She also provides power point slides for her lectures online, I would recommend printing them off to take notes on and then rewriting them. Be sure to do the study guides for each chapter as I accredit my success in her class to how well they were written and prepared me for the exams.

    Course highlights:

    I have a very solid understanding of general biology after taking this course. I took biology in high school and this course took that class to a deeper level. There is a lot of course work and study time but a deep sense of accomplishment once you are able to finish the course. The highlight of this course was supposed to be the undergraduate study all the biology classes are doing, however I found it to be tedious and hard to understand until the final week of class when we had recieved all the information on how DNA and viruses function.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you have a basic understanding of chemistry and high school level biology. Judy is a wonderful teacher who gives you every chance to succeed so make sure that you do the work she recommends and you will do wonderfully. As previously stated, the study guides for the chapters are a god send!
