    | Would highly recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    BIO I is the perfect introductory course to begin to understand who we are as living organisms. It is a vital and necessary part of understanding who and what we are.

    Course highlights:

    I learned that life and it's working parts are infinitely smaller and more complex than we can imagine. I learned that life, and largely existence, operate by and adhere to physical laws that govern the happenings inside and around us.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I think this course should certainly be taken by everyone. Everyone stands to gain a lot of important knowledge. However, this course introduces a lot of difficult to understand and complex biological processes. It pays to research explanations for these which are not given in class so as to view the idea through the different perspectives of the definitions to help yourself gain a more accurate picture of what logically is happening.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class because this class is mostly a prerequisite and it really sets up the expectation for future science courses.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights for this course was learning the difference between animal cells and plant cells and other types of cells and learning each parts function. You go a bit into anatomy and mitosis and meiosis, and bacteria strains. You also do labs in class.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I really suggest taking the notes, read the chapter for that weeks topic and bring a snack or money for a snack to eat during break(usually about 10 minutes). You may also have to do connect homework assignments which are the most helpful for quizzes and exams. And don't forget your labs cuz they are done about each week and you can only miss 2 of those. Basically attendance is vital.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I understand how this class helps you understand an overall of Biological Procedures, but if you are not ready to put the work I recommend not to expect anything less than any 5 credit course. It requires work and memorization, to read and understand material, even doing so more than once.

    Course highlights:

    Stressful for summer, long hours, long concept learning. You must go over the same material, more than once to produce retention. Do not lightly take this course as everything learned will be more likely in the exam. Did I mention tough exam? I bit my nails and pulled my hair.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Do not take it during summer, I repeat do not. The memorization needed for each concept and material is unable to be taken in 10 weeks. You must read, review and repeat. Several times until you have no doubt about answers. Get a study guide.
