    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course is designed to challenge first-year biology students. It requires your dedication and commitment. Although the difficulty level is through the roof, it was still great to learn of micro-organisms, diseases, etc. The challenge made me realize that I wasn't dedicated to the material which in turn made me find my true passion in another major. I would recommend to students only if they truly are devoted to furthering their knowledge in biology.

    Course highlights:

    Labs of course! Leaving the classroom for an outdoor scenery or getting fully dressed in lab gear in an actual lab setting lets you actually experience what you have read. This hands-on approach is when I learned best.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    My number one tip is to absolutely study. I know how repetitive this tip is, but it is absolutely crucial. It is proven that studying can increase test scores. Setting time aside to study will most likely establish your success in the course.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class was very simple and easy. The teacher was leniate. The tests are moderately easy and biology itself is mostly memorization.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of the course were the moderate tests, easy homework, and excellent tutoring sessions.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't skip classes, do all the homework on time, pay attention during lectures, and if possible memorize and practice notes.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Dr. France was a tough professor. The final was worth 40 percent and each test was 20 percent. She was definitely thorough and prepared you more for other courses, but not easy to say the least.

    Course highlights:

    Mostly microbiology speaking about mostly the cell and its functions.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Its a pre-req for any biology major, its difficult but doable. Just stay on top of things from the beginning.
