Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I would recommend this course with this professor because, in my opinion, she teaches at a higher caliber than the other professor I have had in the past. Also, I believe that if you enjoy biological sciences, this course will be very enjoyable because it explores the development and evolution of life over time, almost like a Biological History of the World as we know it. I loved this class, and like I said, if you like biology I would definitely recommend this course.
I loved the structure of the course; treating the development of life as a chronological series of events allowed me to thoroughly create a mental timeline starting from the formation of earth and stretching to present day as life evolved through the ages. As a matter of fact, this class structure definitely provided a much deeper understanding of the content. If not for the structure of the course, I have to say that the Biology 2 Lab that is mandatory if taking the lecture course is the most memorable highlight. I loved ending my Thursdays with the Bio 2 Lab, especially when we got to dissections. If Biology is a passion, then the Labs are definitely amazing.

Advice for students:
1. Take good notes. Simply annotating in the text book is not good enough. Writing everything down will allow you memorize the content quicker that when test time comes, only light studying is necessary. 2. Do not procrastinate notes. A lot of content is covered in this course, and every week there is 2-3 take assignments. 3. Come test time, cover over your notes, past quizzes, and most importantly past clicker questions. The clicker questions answered in class lectures frequently find their way onto tests.
