    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    In terms of grades, you have nothing to worry about. But, if learning the course material is important to you, be ready to do a lot of independent study.

    Course highlights:

    The teacher is very easy going and stress-free. However, she, while obviously passionate about the subject at hand, cannot teach very well. Prompting her with questions always results in the same confusing answers.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Get the textbook, read the textbook, love the textbook.

    | Would recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The class was very interactive and knowledgeable. Test are open book and not too hard as well. Also liked the opportunity to get extra credit.

    Course highlights:

    Using LearnSmart and having the chapters broken down into simple terms were a big highlight for me. I learned processes like cell division: mitosis and meiosis in great detail, but still in a simple way that I could understand.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be prepared to read and take notes. Also, answer and ask lots of questions to score extra credits points.

    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would definitely not recommend this course especially online because it includes a lot of work. My major is Business Administration so Biology isn't really my best subject but I found it really hard. The work is a lot to the point where you just want to finish the homework and move on.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights were the topics in our discussions, this is where I probably learned the most. Each week we were given three topics about anything related to science. It could have been about Mars, donating kidneys, genes, and so on. With these topics, we had to research about them and then write on our discussion board.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    My advice is to take this class at school, not online or take a different course from all the other choices you have under the science category.
