    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Doug is a phenomenal teacher. His class is very fast paced, but he will slow down or repeat something if you need him to.

    Course highlights:

    I learned so much in Doug's class. He is smart, well read, and just a joy to be around. He loves to teach and it is easy to tell. I love learning about the human body, and I really enjoyed learning about viruses and bacteria,

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    The advice I would give to students considering this course is to stay on top of things. Sit in the front of the class, pay attention and ask questions. I like writing my notes in class on loose leaf paper and then transferring them over into a notebook later, that really helps me with retention. Flash cards are also a must. Cramming is useless, just cut out some time everyday instead of two hours straight the night before.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would definitely recommend this course! Not only is the professor very engaging, but the curriculum is also very intriguing. Dr. Hamed makes you think outside the box and consider things that are unimaginable.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights in this course would include the lab work. In lab, we learned how to look look through microscopes and determine the compositions of microorganisms and environmental objects. The class is very participating during lab, and the students get to cooperate with one another.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Always study your materials prior to tests and quizzes. Dr. Hamed gives major hints about information that could potentially show up on tests and quizzes, so do not disregard it. Also, be a participating student in class! You will learn more from engaging with the professor and your classmates than keeping your opinion quiet.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would highly recommend this course. Dr. Hamed is a phenomenal professor who instills his passion for biology into the hearts of his students. I have never met a more blunt and real person in my life. This was a very intriguing and eye-opening course!

    Course highlights:

    The greatest part of this course was the interaction that took place. The class was small, so Dr. Hamed interacted with every single one of us on a personal level as we also got to know our fellow classmates. I learned much more in this course than just biology. I learned how to speak in front of my class confidently, how to decipher between credible and non-credible conspiracy theories, and most importantly, I learned how to become passionate about something just from witnessing my professor express his passion to us.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be prepared for work, and highlight everything that you think is important in the lecture notes. I would highly suggest making a Quizlet for every chapter would also be very beneficial to you and your classmates. Always think outside the box, and do not be afraid to spill out your opinion in class. Also, get involved in the discussions because you will learn more from contributing than just listening.
