Always Do the Reading
Background Knowledge Expected
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I would recommend this course to anyone, but especially students interested in going into medicine. Although it is a pre-requisite for medical schools, I especially recommend enrolling in Dr. Spell's lecture session.
I learned that biology is a lot more than just memorizing the pathways of mitosis and meiosis, In high school I particularly struggled with cellular respiration and photosynthesis ,and I got all the pathways and mechanisms mixed up. Now I understand not only how each works, but I can explain the pathways and understand the purpose of each.

Advice for students:
This isn't a course where you can just go to lecture and get an A. You have to put in the effort, do the work, go to office hours, complete the problem sets, go to BioMentors, etc. but at the end of it all, you will reap the rewards.
