    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Required class for biology majors. A very interesting class that involves case studies on patients with varying diseases, relates to real life situations.

    Course highlights:

    I learned that many diseases have similar symptoms and it is important to be thorough when observing a patient in order to diagnose correctly. This class connected to real life situations that I will most likely encounter in my future in the medial field.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Stay on top of the material, read the chapter before class everyday, sit in the front and ask questions. Class attendance is mandatory in order to gain bonus points
