    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Biological Diversity is a genuinely interesting subject, whom anyone can find at least one chapter to enjoy from. Personally, as a student studying Animal Biology, the subject quickly became one of my favourites. But do not be fooled, its not easy! Dr Rubelmann is also a fantastic teacher and very fair in grading and exams. He always tries to make the lectures interesting and worth your time, so I would always strongly advise attending!

    Course highlights:

    The material was a great introduction to diversity on earth and our environment in general. The highlights were in Dr Rubelmann's class when he became exited over a subject or explain a real-world example which were amazing and memorable. Throughout the course, I learnt a lot about the origin of life on Earth, about the species that inhabit Earth, how they have evolved, the environment, about our own species and origin, and finally about conservation, the different methods and it's importance.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be ready to learn a lot and to work hard for a good grade! To begin with, don't let the material pile up, and try to keep a constant study schedule. Be ready for exams - pro tip, flashcards were a must have for me! Be resourceful, and try to learn what the best way to study is for you - whether that be taking notes, making flashcards, or watching videos. Always attend the lecture, as they are super helpful. And lastly, be ready for exam 3 and the final! They are the hardest. The first exam is the easiest, so really try to get a good grade in it. That would be all my advice, good luck!

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because unlike some courses in college you have to study and you must actually understand the material. This course and the way it was taught forced students to learn and grasp the material, not only for the course, but also for future knowledge.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course were the learning objectives and the clicker questions throughout the semester. The clicker questions were real test questions that helped to understand the material being taught and forced students to prepare ahead of time for the class. I learned about evolution, phylegentic trees, and different phylums and groups of animals.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    I advise students to prepare before class, come to class ready to learn and with your CLICKER for sure. I also advise students to ask questions and do the homework.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Upadhyaya is tough but fair. I would recommend him, but know you have to study.

    Course highlights:

    This was a great class to learn college not taking skills. His exams very closely follow the lectures rather then the books. He does give extra credit, but it isn't a lot so make sure you have the time to dedicate.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure to attend every class! There are in class assignments and his lectures are vital to pass.
