    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course is extremely helpful if you pay attention to lectures and read the specified chapters in the book. Lectures may seem fast and lacking substance at first, but the professor is actually basically telling you things that help for quizzes and exams. It is very helpful to use flashcards for bacterias and viruses.

    Course highlights:

    Some highlights were doing case studies as homework. I found it very essential because you are taking what you learn in lecture and reading the textbook and applying it to real life situations. They can even be fun sometimes if you do it with others.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Attend S.I. meetings if you are able, and try to get with a group to study with because there will be a time that someones knows something vital that you don't, and vice versa. Also, use flashcards, charts, and diagrams to help you retain your information for this course.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Dr. El-Mayas is a great teacher and really knows the information. She conveys it in a manner that allows you to remember and apply to the case studies. She provides a lot of anecdotes (seriously, it's concerning what her husband and daughter have gone through) that effectively help the student understand course content. There are 4 tests and she provides study guides roughly one week before the test.

    Course highlights:

    Dr. El-Mayas is a very animated person. That can be distracting for some but it somehow helped me piece together information. But as far as the actual content, microbiology will leave you feeling suspicious of everything you come into contact with and have you evaluating how you managed to survive with all the bacteria in the world! The information isn't easy but if you have the background knowledge and grasp the basic concepts walking in, you should be fine.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do the study guides. Then do them again. Her study guides are long for a reason. You will definitely need a book as a lot of the study guide answers are found there. Critical thinking is also required. The answers will not pop out at you. Cramming for the tests is ill-advised as it is a lot of information. I sat in the front row and recorded her lectures every class meeting. Try to jot down PowerPoint notes before class and add in her verbal information during the lecture. For the group activities, the answers are more than likely in the slides presented that day. Try to find group partners early on and stick with them. It's not fun having to find new partners for every activity.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    The professor is energetic. It's actually a great class, but don't think you can pass without studying.

    Course highlights:

    You'll learn about bacteria and viruses, and the diseases they cause.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you do the reading assignments, it helps a lot. This class is not easy, but do the work and you'll be fine.
