    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Arguably the most challenging science course at UConn, MCB2000 tests a student's mental fortitude, ability to apply and understand complex medical concepts, and sharpens your attention to detail. Extreme focus is required to succeed and you will learn if you have what it takes to earn your grade in this course.

    Course highlights:

    Each exam in this course utilizes an array of long and deceptively worded questions with corresponding deceptive multiple choice answers. Being able to recall and recognize minutiae that you may have glossed over in your studies will be your biggest companion and leads to the greatest "a-ha!" moments you have ever had in your academic lifetime. You will NEVER recall everything you may studied but you MUST have a big-picture idea of each set of lectures as well as a keen eye for detail. When you find out your strategy of study for this course and you find success through it, this course feels rewarding and you will be proud of what you have accomplished.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Record every lecture by leaving your phone right next to the professor or you may also record from your laptop. Listen to every recording 2 or more times and write down every word that is stated, literally every word because everything is fair game- the slides and what is emphasized in class. Not everything is on the slides and that's where many students fall short.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This is the absolute hardest course I have ever taken, and therefore I learned more than I ever knew I could in a course. It forces you to use every study skill you have ever learned in order to get all of the material down.

    Course highlights:

    I learned about the TCA cycle and electron transport chain with glucose metabolism and other metabolic pathways. I learned about all of the intermediates in these processes and what stimulates and hinders these processes from occurring.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Record all of the lectures. Take notes during class directly on her power points. After class, listen back to the recording and write out every word that she said. Although this takes a lot of time, everything she says is fair game for exams and this is the most helpful thing in order to do well in her class.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend the course because they way it is taught allows you to learn more about common metabolic pathways. This is one course I learned relative information to my everyday life.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how insulin is regulated when you eat or when you fast.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Study hard, take notes, record the lectures, hand write and repeat lots before the test
