Not too easy. Not too difficult.
This class focuses on many endocrine related diseases and disorders, and we learn a lot about different G-protein coupling receptor cascades that lead to those diseases. Professor Grossman is very sweet and knowledgable about everything she teaches. She makes it so that everything is easier to understand.
We learned about the two different forms of hemoglobin (deoxyhemoglobin and oxyhemoglobin) and how only one specific form is what causes leukemia or sickle cell anemia. We also learned about how blood clotting starts and begins, as well as how our muscles work (through myosin actin interactions). Finally, we learned about so many different cascades that result from hormones interacting with receptors on a cell.

Advice for students:
Definitely try to go over all the material after each lecture. I made the mistake of trying to cram before my midterm and because it was summer session there was SO MUCH INFORMATION. After that experience, I started reviewing lectures the day of or a day after class, just so I would understand the content. It made me enjoy everything, and everything actually made sense!! I aced that final btw!!
