    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The course is very helpful for any student looking into biology or medical field. The course covers a range of subject from bacteria to viruses and is applicable to the real world such as environmental safety/ health and medical industry. The lab is a bonus: it demonstrates to students how to practice safety in a particular environment and the proper protocols for bench lab work.

    Course highlights:

    For my experiment, a great professor would help. The professor I had was very thorough with his instructions, therefore diffused a lot of confusions. He was fair in his grading for the course and would happily explain any miscommunication or errors made on his behalf. Bacteria and virus play a major role in our ecosystem as well as health, therefore learning its life cycles and several major genres of bacterium and virus definitely add to background knowledge for future medical professions, researchers, and environmentalists.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    It is a standard college course. Be on top of your readings and powerpoint slides presented by your professor. What helps me study as a student is forming study groups. Study groups help motivate you to study and most importantly, understand the material. If you can explain the topic, you will be solid like gold.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This class is an easy C+. Advis is a good professor, and he knows a lot! DO THE RECITATION HW THROUGHOUT THE SEMESTER! HE IS A TOUGH GRADER ON THEM. DONT WAIT UNTIL THE LAST WEEK AND GO TO HIS OFFICE HOURS. Exams are multiple choice and he repeats some questions on the next exams.

    Course highlights:

    Integrative Physiology was the hardest class I took up until now. Don't expect it to be easy, but you'll learn a lot. Dr. Advis teaches you how to study and expects the best you can give. He forces you to think and I thought that was really good. DO THE RECITATIONS EARLY, DON'T LET THEM ADD UP! It was pretty hard, but I actually enjoyed the class.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Integrative Phys was the hardest class I've ever taken, but I'm SO glad I took it! His lectures are very interesting and he gives "stupid stories" to help you remember concepts. THE RECITATIONS ARE A NIGHTMARE but if you keep up with it week to week and edit with him, you'll get a great grade. DON'T SKIP LECTURES!! Sit up front and ask questions!

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course was challenging, but very interesting. It was a once a week class that not only taught me important biology information but also good study skills. There is a weekly quiz and finding time to study for that while dealing with other classes helped my time management. Also, studying for these quizzes helped me study for the exams, that way I could not wait until last minute to study for the big tests.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot about different aspects of biology such as genetics, the flow of blood through the heart, and the different parts of each human body system. I also learned great study skills!

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Pace yourself! Do not study all at once, it is a lot of information that must be learned little by little! If you try to study the night before, you will not be able to remember everything.
