    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would highly recommend taking this course if you are interested in some type of investigative career. The class was very informative and the teacher was always helpful and made you feel that no question was dumb.

    Course highlights:

    My favorite lesson was when the teacher taught us that our perceptions can sometimes fool us. And that we need to consider all physical evidence to gain a true understanding of a situation.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Always ask questions. A lot of information is shared over the semester long course, so it can be easy to get behind or lost if you didn't understand what was just explained. If you don't ask questions to get an understanding, then it will be harder for you to understand the next portion of material.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    If you like to challenge yourself and better prepare yourself for college level chemistry, at the least take this course. It may be difficult, but reliance solely on the abridged notes is what makes it difficult. Unless you have a natural affinity for chemistry and related works, this course is going to take extraneous effort and practice.

    Course highlights:

    Despite its difficulty, the teacher is what makes the course. Concepts are reworded into a more entertaining way that makes the material easier to retain.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Enroll in her chemistry focused guidance period. You will understand the topics much better, and she will help you work through topics you need clarification on as well as refer to the textbook for additional aid. Though the notes are the condensed form of the textbook, it is still good to review the actual full text. We may not be allowed to take home completed tests, but she compiles all of them and you may review them during tutorials at lunch or on Saturdays.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It was a great class that helped me to disassociate crime solving that I see on TV and the real work done by men and women in crime labs. It helped me to realize that I want my career to be centered around science as I found our labs and lectures to be very interesting. My teacher previously worked in a crime lab and told us fascinating stories about her time and experience there. She also gave us real life advice if we were considering to pursue a career in forensics.

    Course highlights:

    I learned about different lab work done by forensic scientists, such as the study of bones and firearms. The firearms unit was particularly fun because I didn't previously know there were so many ways to trace a gun back to it's origins. I had a knack to recognizing various patterns that come up when dealing with the handwriting unit where we analyzed documents.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would suggest that you listen during lectures and take notes on the more specific details. I would also say to be keep in mind what units you like and don't like in case you decide to specialize in something in the field of forensics after high school.
