    | Would highly recommend.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    The professors are very fair! All the information you need to know for the exams are on the slides, nothing comes from the book and is only necessary if deeper understanding is needed.

    Course highlights:

    I loved this intro biology course, it focused on micro-molecular processes including the central dogma, signaling, cancer and mutations and a lot more!

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Start studying early! They cover a lot of material but if you keep up with it it really isn't too bad. Also, join a study group or utilize the SLC tutoring program, they are valuable resources.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    While I love biology, I don't know if I would recommend the specific course for just anybody. It is a weeder course for almost any science major, and having taken it my first semester of college, I was ill-prepared for how hard I would have to work. If you love biology, take it. But if you aren't interested and it isn't required, I know that there are better classes worth 4 credits.

    Course highlights:

    I liked the fact that the instructor switched - it felt like a new class, which made it feel more interesting and it was exciting to go in and learn from somebody new. A lot of information was review from AP bio, but there were still pieces that I had not yet learned that made the material more interesting as a whole.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Though it will take more time, join a study group. Being able to ask any question that you have in a small group setting, as well as being able to hear everybody else's questions that you may not have even thought of, will give you a great advantage when it comes to exam time and application questions are not exactly correlated with what is written on the slides.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course gives you an in depth understanding of general biological concepts and the profs do an outstanding job at presenting the information.

    Course highlights:

    Highlights of this course are the first half of the semester that Chapman lectures. He is one of the best lecturers I have ever had and present the information in an outstanding manner.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the textbook and take notes from the chapter, as well as take notes during lecture. When reviewing for an exam, rewatch all the lectures on canvas until the concepts are pounded into your mind.
