Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Would recommend! Dr. Sarkar was a great instructor and always willing to answer questions when you aren't quite getting it. Definitely provided a solid foundation in biology.
Because of this course, I definitely developed a strong foundation in cell biology, biochemistry, and some neurobiology. I feel ready to move on to evolution and ecology, and then to more advanced and more in-depth biology courses.

Advice for students:
Each week, study the material from the last week AND do the reading for next class before you come to class. This way, you refresh what you just learned and you come prepared to gain a full understanding of the coming week's material. This is the best way to get through any biology course, so when the test comes, you're surely prepared to ace it. Memorizing facts is NOT how you learn biology; you must genuinely understand the ideas and biological processes if you wish to truly learn! All it takes is some effort.
