    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course is rigorous and is part of the path needed to pursue a career in medicine. Filled with hands-on labs, it allows for up-close and personal learning. The only reason it gets four stars out of five is that notes and expectations for tests are sometimes cloudy and unclear.

    Course highlights:

    I learned in detail about human and animal anatomy which is fascinating. Dissecting a fetal pig was an excellent way to really see the organs and structures talked about in class. I learned how photosynthesis really works, beyond the "plants make food" surface knowledge anyone going into the class already has.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Study for tests. Make use of notes sheets handed out in class and don't be afraid to ask questions whether its a question about the notes, the readings, or even about the test while you're taking it. Be prepared to do homework 3-4 nights a week and try to stay on Ramos' good side, and she may be willing to be a little flexible on grading.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Interesting ,as it applies to the living condition. I liked how topics could be compared to human systems. Learning about the unseen world via the microscope was amazing! It was challenging, but in an undetectable way. Honors Biology

    Course highlights:

    Lab oriented activities were a highlight in this course. Consideration of the role DNA plays in the design of life was fascinating as it's molecular structure is quite simple. DNA is a bit deceiving in that way. I really enjoyed discussing the current genetic frontiers that are constantly changing the landscape of molecular biology. Certainly Watson and Crick or Rosalind Franklin couldn't imagine we would accumulate so much knowledge about the manipulation of DNA. It was exciting and thought provoking to weigh the pros and cons of applying these advancements in our modern society.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    The mastery of the prefixes and suffixes connected to the biology vocabulary was vital. Sometimes the terms were like a foreign language, but understanding that when broken down they made sense really helped. Make an effort to review information daily and keep a running set of flash cards.
