    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course gives understanding of the basics of biology. Some of the topics that we focused on included: ecology, human anatomy/physiology, and cells.

    Course highlights:

    Human anatomy and ecology were definitely the highlights personally. Taylor taught us the fundamentals of the human heart and drew a basic picture of the anatomy.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    The most effective way to pass this class would be to take notes in class, and study them. This professor goes over most material for his test in lectures.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Professor is outgoing and makes Biology interesting by telling stories of his personal experiences, and also has a method of teaching by making Biology seem like it is an easy subject to those who are not majoring in any sciences.

    Course highlights:

    I learned that by studying his study guides and making additional study guides/flashcards for myself, it helped me understand the material rather than reading my notes over and over again thinking that i've gotten everything memorized. This method of studying (aside from studying/reviewing at least 1 hour of Biology per day) is what helped me achieve a overall grade of 85% or higher throughout the whole semester.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Enjoy the course. Find something interesting about the chapters and don't always think about getting a good grade in the class. Learn and apply the material to your daily life, don't just memorize it.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Even though Bio 109 is one of the options for a general ed to be able to transfer, it is a great thing to know how your body works. It's a must to be educated how life works, and the science behind it.

    Course highlights:

    The biggest highlight of the class for me that has stuck with me so far and it will stick with me for the rest of my life is knowing what it takes to loose weight. People have all these advice and things to loos weight but in fact when being taught what your body goes through in the process of "dieting" got me to realize dieting is not worth it ! Knowing that an avocado has twice the amount of fat as two steaks blew my mind.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    It is a course like I said that you should take. Although you need a science class to be done with your general ed, taking bio will educate you about the body and society. You will learn a lot in how society, the media is wrong about what they about your body or life. Bio is there to teach you about not just life but yourself.
