    | Would recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course for anyone who is required to have it. This is not a simple introductory course, so if you do not need it, don't apply for it unless it is for your degree.

    Course highlights:

    The biggest highlight for this class was "learning how to learn," as my professor put it. Doctor Whiting expects you to truly learn the material, not just regurgitate it on a test. She wants you to make connections not only within a specific chapter, but all the chapters covered. She'll ask you to make concept maps to practice making connections.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    To succeed in BIOL 1107K with professor Whiting you need to take advantage of any teaching assistants she has, and to pay close attention to the Mastering Biology homework, and the notes of her PowerPoints as well. You going to have to put some effort into your work, but if you find yourself struggling, don't hesitate to talk to Professor Whiting.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The professor truly cares for his students and does everything he can to make sure you understand the material. Tests are a little challenging, but fair. He uses technology a lot in class, uploading powerpoints and quizzes online.

    Course highlights:

    The labs were interesting. Most of the class was learning about cells: mitosis, meiosis, DNA, etc..

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Study the powerpoint slides and pay attention in class and you will do completely fine, no need for the textbook.

    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This teacher was very sweet although lacked in the teaching area. She forgot a lot of things she did or did not tell us. She told us not to learn information that was later on her exams. She would often forget which class she was teaching is was not easy to work with.

    Course highlights:

    We learned about the body such as genes and water cycles. We learned about how genes are passed down and all about DNA and RNA. We learned about different types of animals and how they lived they adapted to the environments.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    STUDY! I studied everyday, went to study groups, studied with friends and still did not do well at all!
