    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class truly puts our lives in perspective compared to every other species. Professor Brooks effectively teaches the importance of looking at other species to better understand our own, and to look at history in order to unlock the future in an evolutionary sense. Not only does he have a fresh, humorous manner of teaching, but he is also very involved in discoveries and research that is being utilized to this day in regards to the curriculum of the course. As if the subject itself isn't interesting and engaging enough, Dr. Brooks keeps all his students engaged and fascinated with the story of life.

    Course highlights:

    In terms of the material itself, the highlights could be found in the fascination and awe you will be left with. It is so easy to live surrounded with nature's wonders, without realizing how important and related they are. This class effectively demonstrated the greatest phenomenon, or one could even say miracle, of life. Its absolutely incredible to follow along in the course of nature, as the simplest carbon molecules are added on over the years to lead to organisms, and eventually to life as we know it today. In this class, you will see how small the differences are in species after species, making our relationships all the more obvious and real.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    To succeed in Professor Brook's class, I would highly recommend writing down every relevant word he says. There are certain things you can tell he gets excited about, and he loves to make test questions based off of these. Also, this class is much easier to succeed in when you look at the big picture. Nature's trend is to perfect itself over the years. This "big picture" can be very easy to forget when you're cramming for exams to get a good grade. For this reason, it is vital to keep up with the material and appreciate it.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it is not too challenging for freshman, but it prepares you for much harder courses. Also Dr. Brooks is a great professor.

    Course highlights:

    You learn a lot of phylogeny in this course. While you will not need to know much of it for the rest of your academic career, it is a very interesting subject.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you take good notes in the lecture notes book. Also make quizlet questions from the bullet points.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I was one of the most informative courses I have ever taken.

    Course highlights:

    I learned to process a lot of information at once, and how to better link chunks of material together to shorten study times. Also, learning about different organisms is interesting.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Go to lecture and study your notes. Better to print out her powerpoint presentations before hand and use that to supplement your note taking. The textbook is pretty useless though. The discussion follow-along sheets were a life saver.
