    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class because Dr. Randal is very passionate about the subject and does a thorough job of explaining all subjects. The content is interesting and the assignments are useful. I enjoyed all of the time in the lab and recent applications that connect subjects.

    Course highlights:

    I was able to learn lab techniques, such as streak plating, while learning how to identity different bacteria based on tests. I also learned about viruses and mechanisms behind infections.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take it!! Especially if you are considering doing anything in the biology field after high school. It is an amazing and useful microbiology course.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I loved microbes and disease! It was by far the most interesting and intriguing class I have taken in my entire life and the lab aspects were absolutely phenomenal, as we got to learn through exploring the techniques ourselves. Some lab skills that I loved practicing were gram staining and determining the different classifications and shapes of the bacteria themselves.

    Course highlights:

    I learned many lab skills that still follow throughout this past year, as well as many applicable facts, such as how immunology works, as well as how our cells interact with foreign microbes when they are introduced into our system.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Definitely study, and draw out many pictures, as they help the most.
