    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    If you enjoy learning about science and biology, this is definitely the course for you. BISC207 is a general biology course that explains the main aspects of life, and the professor teaches this course in an interactive way that improves the class’s communication skills and the students’ knowledge on the lessons learned.

    Course highlights:

    BISC207 is a general Biology course that takes a molecular and cellular approach to general aspects of biology. Certain highlights of this course included photosynthesis, cellular respiration, reproduction, etc. I learned a lot in just one semester, and I definitely acquired a general understanding of many different topics that will be necessary to know when taking my future science courses.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    To students considering this course: study. Although you hear this all the time, this is the one thing that will help you get through this course. Take your time studying and start early. Attend professors’ office hours and ask them for help- they really do want you to succeed. Also, do not leave your work for the last minute! Although BISC207 is not an ”impossible” class to take, it can still become unmanageable if you fall behind.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Do not take this class with Dr Raden. His teaching skills are borderline abysmal and I had to teach myself the entire course. His lectures are comprised of him talking utter gibberish about pictures on a PowerPoint slide; Raden knows everything about a whole lot about nothing. TAs for non-integrated sections are horrible, they will never help you and grade all lab submissions like it was a legal document going straight to the president to get passed as a law. DEFINITELY take integrated BISC207!

    Course highlights:

    I learned nothing in class but I learned cool things about cell respiration as well as cell division all through independent study. Exams are always off tangent to the work in class so never rely on class notes; it is imperative that you make your own notes from textbook and online resources if you end up with Raden. Class really is easy but lab grades brought me down a whole letter grade from an A.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Avoid Raden Beware, it does function as a "weed-out" class. Take it after asking sophomores on tips for teachers (Devito and Nauen are optimal) Take INTEGRATED!!!!

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Raden is extremely disorganized and lectures are comprised of him going off on tangents that will not be reflected anywhere on the exam. The exam averages are always extremely low so he has to add a hefty curve.

    Course highlights:

    Didn't learn anything from his lectures, all vague pictures that he explains as "its just in the book" had to teach myself everything

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would recommend taking another professor, exams were extremely hard and the only thing that saved my grade was the 10 minutes of open notes at the end of exams and my lab grade.
