    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I loved the lecture professor. He was funny, entertaining, and overall a great teacher. However, my lab professor wasn't much help during class and made it unenjoyable.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of this course was learning about cell division which is an intricate and interesting process that everyone should have to learn about.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    To succeed in this course, do the online homework, study the online homework for the exams, and read the chapters from your book.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    She is a wonderful teacher who can explain the subject to everyone in a multitude of ways. She enjoys her job and it shows through her teachings. She also will only test you on things that she has taught in class and also only things that are needed. She avoids making students memorize things that can be found by a simple google search

    Course highlights:

    Dr. Axel knows that sometimes students just don't want to be in class and she works around that. She puts little side stories into her teachings to help give a break to all the information being taught. Throughout the class the parts that have stuck with me the most was the classification of the animal kingdom. She broke it down and tried to give little trick to help remember what was what.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read your book. Yes she only tests you on things that she has taught in class but it can be on information that is from the book on the topic that she broached in class.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The professor in this course uses an online program for homework. As long as you do your homework fully(and do it with the intent to learn it) you will do well on her tests. She gives detailed lectures with PowerPoint presentations which make the material easier to understand. She also frequently emails students with videos or links to help them get a better grasp on difficult topics.

    Course highlights:

    As the course name would suggest, I learning the basics of biology. Gillespie helped me to do more than just memorize, she helped me learn the material. The lab that goes with this lecture is fun. This course was not writing intensive.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    You need to do your homework. Go to her lectures. You can pass with poor attendance, but being in class truly helps you to understand the material. Get comfortable using online materials. The online book provided with her online homework helps you to learn the material by guiding your reading.
