    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It is extremely fast paced and the professor does not explain concepts very well

    Course highlights:

    I learned about the cells, genetic trees, and mitosis/meiosis

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    READ!!! It'll help a ton in the long run and on your weekly quizzes

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend this course because of how in depth the professor goes into the subject matter and you can easily tell how much the professor cares about his students because of his availability and quick response to any emails students may send.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of the course were the way that professor Wright would teach us the course information. He would include several quirky and nerdy comments that tied into the lesson and would entertain the students.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would advise other students to stay focused during his lectures and to not be afraid to go up to him before or after class to ask him a question. You should definitely email him if you have any questions about the course and he will respond to you as soon as he can with as much clear information as possible.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This class was taught partially by Professor Wright, but also by Dr. Marushia. While Prof. Wright was sometimes engaging, I found that overall, the course was boring, and Dr. Marushia was not very interesting at all.

    Course highlights:

    We learned about general biology, covering: cells, mitosis/miosis, DNA/ RNA replication, transcription, translation, phylogeny, genetic mutation and variation, and evolution.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    The exams were all true/ false, and most students did very poorly on them. I would strongly recommend going to every lecture, and keeping note of the clicker questions, as they are extremely helpful for the exams.
