    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The professor is incredibly engaging, lots of energy and that excitement is transferred to the students; as well as making himself as available as possible. Constantly encourages class participation and discussion, either clearing up issues with comprehension or just questioning some of the implications that come with studying smaller levels of life.

    Course highlights:

    Honestly, the best highlight of the class was the professor for lectures, often in the morning I do not have the best mood in the morning, but Lisenbee is delightful and a nice mood booster; the class, during lectures, is incredibly fun and engaging. Lisenbee is always excited to start the class, as well as explore the students thoughts about the topics being explored, sometimes even going so far to stop class to talk about any subject, on one occasion to talk about what our thoughts on the origins of life. In the class, there are no "wrong" answers and even when someone suggests something that is incorrect he will often explain in a great way why that isn't true, or how it does or does not apply to a particular area.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    The lab for this class is around 3 hours, so make sure to plan that according.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend Professor Magee because he is very excited about what he teaches and is a very fair teacher and grader. He has long lectures and sometimes the stuff on the tests you can only find in the book. If you read however this class is one you can definitely get an A in. I hope to take another class with Professor Magee. If you can take his class!

    Course highlights:

    I learned about cell processes, cell division, mitosis, meiosis, DNA, traits, disease, and basic things like photosynthesis. He gives out very helpful worksheets to explain processes like photosynthesis or how DNA copies itself. There are many SI sessions you can take advantage of as well.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    You have to at least skim over the chapters in the book, make sure to read the captions and look at the pictures he quizzes on these. Also attendance is mandatory because he does clicker questions, saying that he does offer a lot of bonus points.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do all practice assignments. Go to class to get clicker points. Read
