    | Would recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I made an A in this course, but it wasn't a blow off. I studied and read all of the chapters in the book that the material covered for each test. John Shadwick is overall a pretty nice professor, he will work with you especially if you visit his office. Tests are all online, and there is a lab component which is not difficult.

    Course highlights:

    I gained a better general knowledge of biology which helped lead into my more specific biology courses. He covered some interesting material such as DNA and cancer.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    My advice for this course is to not blow off the reading. Reading the chapters in the book that the tests will be over are the key to doing well on the exams. They explain the material easily and thoroughly.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    If you are taking this course, it's more than likely it is because you are required to. The lab itself is not difficult, but the course work itself is. You have two days following your lab to get your online homework done. Do not procrastinate! Finish the work as soon as you can while the lab is still fresh on your mind. When your professor or TA tells you to read the book, read the book. The labs and the book correspond very closely. When an exam comes along, study everything. The lab manual (yes, labs will be on the exam), the textbook, and even your actual labs, like identifying something under the microscope, will be on the exam. This is not a multiple choice exam either so study as much as possible.

    Course highlights:

    I gained knowledge about the microscope. It was nice to be on your own and experiment with your own microscope. Learning about bacteria was also something that stuck with me. Learning about what is so small that is unseen is very intriguing. Especially when you get to see it up close.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    To succeed you will need to spend thorough time on this course. Studying is a absolute must for the exams. The online homework is graded by correction, so don't play around. Having your book close by is essential. Looking over the lab is also helpful. Many times you will have to do a post lab discussion on paper and you want the lab to be as fresh in your mind as possible.
