    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    This class was extremely helpful, wish I had taken it before the MCAT - probably would have understood the biology and chemistry sections better! This class did a great job of breaking down the interactions between biological systems - a must for any future health care student!

    Course highlights:

    Professor Wells does a good job of describing the neural ions and gates, Dr. Brown focused more on the cardiac system and was not as clear with the power point notes (overwhelming detail), and Dr. Li's coverage mainly of the immune and reproduction systems was presented lightheartedly and sparked class attention (lecture wasn't as dry, but notes on power point were more sparse). Overall I learned a lot about each of the systems and how all the biological systems worked and connected - especially neuron and ion gates and their connection with the cardiac system!

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Easy but can be time consuming. Focus almost entirely on lecture material and pay attention/attend class - this last one is mandatory! So much information is covered in each lecture and while there are power points, there are no recordings. If you do buy the book (I used it very little) focus more on knowing and understanding connections and the last page summary of the chapters they give you to "read". And focus on the bigger concept, don't get bogged down by details. This is why lecture is important, and it's during the lectures that they go over information and it seems more clear (if you pay attention). To study for this class it's best that you either explain a lecture or concept thoroughly to another person or to yourself OUT LOUD. At least, this worked for me! Practice tests are great too, I used the ones they gave me as a final review after I did all my heavy studying, to see what I missed and needed to go back over. Finally, study some at a time or be sure you understand a previous lecture before getting too involved in the next one - for me I'd spend hours learning and understanding just one lecture, and shudder to think what would happen if I did a large load of procrastination. If you study this way (little at a time), this allows your last several days of studying to be lighter and just reviewing concepts, and gives you time to take the practice tests without having an overwhelming number of sleepless nights. Also make sure to participate in class for extra credit test points, they help!

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Challenging course but worth it! The professors offered several opportunities to earn a little extra credit on exams here and there.

    Course highlights:

    Awesome course and taught to match BIO section of the MCAT!

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Great course for premed students!
