    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    If you like to sit in a class, and learn about proteins or lipids and DNA or RNA with little to no hands on activity this is the class for you. If not, do not take this class.

    Course highlights:

    I didn't really learn anything helpful. We are taught the stuff we go over in this course in our high school classes so it's basically a less entertaining repeat of that.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you study for the test, and do your homework.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    The course revolves around the, " Theory of Evolution." As this course touches on the bigger side of biology like the ecosystem and phylogenetics which is the basic study of how species relate through evolution. It also touches on the anatomy and physiology of plants and animals which is a interesting subject.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course were learning all about the theory of evolution as the course explained the ways it can happen like through Natural selection, Artificial selection, Bottleneck effect, Non random mating and many more ways that evolution can occur. Another highlight was learning about phylogenetics and seeing how certain species and organisms are related this is the most interesting part of the course and definitely the biggest highlight.One of my favorite parts of the course was learning the differences between flowers as there are two types a monocot and a dicot these each have different characteristics that make them unique from the other it was a interesting thing to add to my brain.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    The advice I could give is that study groups are a necessity also study guides are too. Make sure to know the characteristics of each major group and how it makes them different from the other groups when I say groups I mean Kingdoms, like plants, animals , fungi, etc. This is what the real difficulty in this course is that is remembering so much information for multiple groups of organisms.Make sure to read the book before each class period this will surely help the student to understand the material better. The class BIO 125 is needed before this class and is a good base to take this course on as knowledge from the previous course is used in this course. This course will also be applied to regular situations and that is how most tests are on giving real life situations that info from the course needs to be applied.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it gives students valuable information that they will need in order to pass the gateway exam at our school and the lab that goes with this course. Most importantly it gave me the confidence booster I needed to become a serious biology major.

    Course highlights:

    This class has taught me so much about learning how to classify certain organisms and figuring out which kingdom, domain, and phylum they belong to. It also taught me the overall concept of what biological evolution is and how it occurs through certain trends.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    In order to be successful you MUST read the chapters, especially before the lecture so you know what the professor is talking about. It also helps if you go through the power point slides that are given to you and review them everyday to ensure you are not forgetting any of the material.
