    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Great intro course to create a foundation for further learning in Biochem or to fill up general prerequisites for professional programs.

    Course highlights:

    Enzymes are essential to life, and once you learn more about amino acids you start to understand how and why they function are different temperatures or pHs. Life is really amazing.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Study the course notes and use the practice tests to guide your study process. The practice tests have good examples of question types you will definitely see on the tests.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Yes, I would recommend this course, because the professor knew what he was talking about and had the ability to make sure everyone in the room understood what he was talking about.

    Course highlights:

    Highlights of this course included his tangents which were relevant to what we were going over in lecture, he drew cycles and pathways so they made more sense on the board, and his power points were short and concise, and he gave quizzes at the end of every week, which helped with putting everything we learned that week together. I learned a lot in this course, including the 20 amino acids, all the relevant cycles that occur in our body and how everything is intertwined with each other.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Some advice I would give is to make sure you understand his power points, and to draw/write everything that he puts on the board. I would also advice to study with friends/other classmates that are taking this course, because the cycles and amino acids are not easy to remember and it takes a lot of memorizing to make sure you do great on the exams. Also if you are still struggling, go to his office hours, he can answer your questions in great detail, making sure you understand the concept before leaving.
